A journey through memory accompanied by Buñuel’s photographs taken during the scouting of locations for “Nazarín."


Following Nazarín re-discovers the poetic, vivid, and inspiring force of Buñuel’s cinematography. The documentary is a journey through memory accompanied by Luis Buñuel’s photographs taken during the scouting of locations for his iconic film “Nazarín” (1959), as well as the ones made by Manuel Álvarez Bravo during the shooting of the film.

The documentary exposes director Javier Espada’s profound knowledge of the film and of Luis Buñuel himself. Along with the testimonies and reflections of artists, filmmakers, and intellectuals like Luis Eduardo Aute, Jean Claude Carrière, Carlos Reygadas, Silvia Pinal, Arturo Ripsetein, and Carlos Saura, among many others, Following Nazarín offers film students important information about the way of working of one of the best filmmakers of all time, references to the Mexican film industry of the period, as well as other elements linked to the process of artistic creation.
