The notorious Last Supper sequence in Luis Buñuel's VIRIDIANA. Credit: Janus Films. Playing 4/24 - 4/30.

I was treated to a documentary with Silvia Pinal, the mexican superstar, about the 1961 Bunuels’ Viridiana. Phenomenal. I think I watched it in Cambridge early 70s, where I also watched La Hora de Los Hornos, argentina. Ultra Subersive,  both,  in different realms (what a bad word: ill use kingdom). It won La Palme D’or, Cannes. Franco ordered the incineration of all copies, according to Ms Pinal one copy survived in Paris.
