Symbol of the surrealist cinematographic avant-garde, Luis Buñuel arrived by chance in Mexico in 1946, where he directed 20 of his 32 features including The Exterminating Angel. This unexpected shift in his career shaped his unique works, as he created variations on imprisonment, as well as a necessary satire on religion and male chauvinism.
