Izotova, I. S. Death Theme in the First Bunuels Films.

Published in journal "Philosophy and Culture", 2010-12 in rubric "Philosophy of death", pages 112-118.

Resume: The article provides a brief research on the problem of death in the fi rst Bunuels fi lms (Un chien andalou, 1929, Lge dor, 1930, Las Hurdes. Tierra sin pan, 1932). The author concludes that the directors preoccupation by the problem of death, expressed with naturalistic and sexual images and aggressively built narration, results not just from French model of surrealism, but has its own deep grounds in Spanish culture, surrealistic by itself.

Keywords: philosophy, death, Spanish culture, surrealism, cinema, Eros, de Sade, Bunuel
