Luis Bunuel Portoles (22 February 1900 ? 29 July 1983) was a Spanish filmmaker who also acquired Mexican citizenship and worked in Spain, Mexico, France and the US. His films were known for their surreal imagery and disturbing scenes, including those in which chickens populate nightmares, women grow beards, and aspiring saints are desired by luscious women.
