The memoir of Juan Luis Buñuel (b. 1934 in Paris) offers a first-hand look at the life of a vibrant man who has been surrounded by important figures of the twentieth century, including his father Luis Buñuel, Alexander Calder, Joan Miró, and Orson Welles, among many others. Juan Luis’ writings reveal a Buñuelian sense of lucid, dark humor and outrage over society’s pretensions and inequities.
Juan Luis Buñuel, the eldest son of noted filmmaker Luis Buñuel, has made award-winning feature films & documentaries around the world. His imaginative paintings and sculpture have been exhibited in galleries in France, Mexico, the U.S., and Spain.
Linda C. Ehrlich is the editor of The Cinema of Víctor Erice: An Open Window and the author of Cinematic Reveries: Gestures, Stillness, Water.
Here is the book that all of us who know and admire Juan Luis Buñuel have been waiting for the book that complements the dazzling memoir of his famous father, Spanish filmmaker Luis Buñuel, and that of his delightful and long-suffering French mother. Like a latter-day Yorick, Juan Luis knows how to set the table at a roar. And what stories he has to tell-–and with what an array of characters, some of them household names! Here is a book throbbing with life, definitely not to be missed. Hallelujah!
Ian Gibson, Irish-born biographer of Luis Buñuel,
