Abstract

his paper examines nonhuman animals in films directed by Luis Buñuel from the perspective of writers now associated with the ‘animal turn’ including John Berger, Jacques Derrida, Donna Haraway and Jonathan Burt. It focuses on the way that Buñuel's surrealist and blackly humorous approach to on-screen representation works to level the human-animal gaze, encouraging us to examine ourselves more closely in the reflection of our animal others and to question the notion that there is a secure boundary between the human and the nonhuman world. Particular attention is paid to Buñuel's first three films from the late 1920s and early 1930s for their contemporary relevance to Animal Studies at this distinct, and yet familiar time of economic crisis accompanied by extreme ideological division and the rise of the political right.
