The very first episode of French television channel ORTF’s filmmaker-focused documentary series Cinéastes de notre temps (Filmmakers of Our Time) aired in 1964, and director Luis Buñuel was featured as the inaugural subject.

As an inquisitive portrait, the episode is mainly comprised of interviews with the Aragonese master as he goes on at length and in great detail about himself and his work. Buñuel is an engaging personality and a fascinating talent, so to listen to him speak rather candidly about such things is something of a marvel.
