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.
