Ascent to Heaven
Director: Luis Bunuel
One of Bunuel's favourites of his 'Mexican period' films Ascent to Heaven (also known as Mexican Bus Ride) is a genial surrealistic comedy with many of the hallmarks of Bunuel's later works, including a stand-out dream sequence that ranks amongst his finest work.
Winner of the Special Jury Prize, Cannes Film Festival 1952.
