Little Ashes

Love. Art. Betrayal.

Paul Morrison’s first feature since 2003’s Wondrous Oblivion provides us with a fascinating account of three of the leading artists of their time; Salvador Dalí, Luis Buñuel and García Lorca. Little Ashes follows a young Salvador Dalí from his beginnings living in the Residencia de Estudiantes, leading to his dynamic relationship with poet Federico Lorca and their increasing infatuation with each other. The shots of the picturesque landscapes of Spain alone makes Little Ashes an unmissable spectacle. Set across a timeframe that spans the roots of fascism to the beginning of General Franco’s dictatorship, Little Ashes depicts love in a time where homosexuality was deemed immoral – a point particularly reinforced by Matthew McNulty’s portrayal of surrealist filmmaker Luis Buñuel, a man notorious for his contempt regarding the matter. “While it is a far cry from his role in Twilight, Robert Pattinson brings Dalí to the screen with precisely the irreverent and eccentric personality you would expect from one of the creators of Spain’s avant-garde movement. It is however newcomer Javier Baltrán who steals the show as García Lorca, whose pain and longing is thoroughly portrayed and always felt, but never overplayed. – Raindance Film Festival Trailer
