Paris, 1930. Salvador Dalí and Luis Buñuel are now the leading figures of the surrealist movement. Unexpectedly, Buñuel is left penniless following the scandal around his film L’âge d’or (The Golden Age). In this difficult situation, he can’t even start tackling his next project, a documentary about one of Spain’s poorest regions, Las Hurdes. However, his good friend, the sculptor Ramón Acín, buys a lottery ticket, promising that, if he wins, he’ll pay for the film. Incredibly, luck is on his side.


Salvador Simó (Badalona, Spain. 1968) has worked, among other companies, for Disney, in Paris, and MPC, in London, in the previsualisation and layout department on projects such as The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008), Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010) and Skyfall (2012), and as the sequence lead for The Jungle Book (2016), Passengers (2016) and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017). In 2008 he started to direct an animated series in Asia, of which he finally helmed more than 500 minutes. Buñuel en el laberinto de las tortugas (Buñuel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles) won the Jury Prize at the Los Angeles Animation Film Festival and competed at the Malaga Festival.
