In 1920’s Madrid, three young men from the countryside
met in graduate school. They would go on to change the art
world in their specialties: Federico Garcia Lorca in poetry,
Luis Buñuel in film, and Salvador Dalí in painting. But at the
time of their meetings, they were just three “stray dogs” who
made an instant and powerful bond with one another.
A bond that seemed insoluble, until the pressures of fame,
jealousy, and sexual tension shattered their friendship,
Les Chiens Errants (The Stray Dogs) explores both the arc of
that friendship and surrealism, the mode of expression that
marked their work.
