Nazarin

(Luis Buñuel, 1959)

Thu, July 18, 2013 7 PM

One of Luis Buñuel’s most pointed critiques of organized religion, Nazarin combines humanistic naturalism with a few of the director’s signature surrealistic touches.

Nazarin chronicles the life of a humble priest (Francisco “Paco” Rabal) in a poverty-stricken Mexican parish at the beginning of the 20th century. Mocked and abused by nearly everyone he encounters, he eventually takes to the road but never departs from his strict adherence to the basic principles of Christianity. The film won the International Prize at the Cannes Film Festival. (94 mins., 35mm, in Spanish with English subtitles)
