Un Chien Andalou (French pronunciation: [œ̃ ʃjɛ̃ ɑ̃dalu]An Andalusian Dog) is a 1929 silentsurrealistshort film by the Spanish directorLuis Buñuel and artist Salvador Dalí.[1] It was Buñuel’s first film and was initially released in 1929 with a limited showing at Studio des Ursulines in Paris, but became popular and ran for eight months.[2]

The film has no plot in the conventional sense of the word. The chronology of the film is disjointed, jumping from the initial “once upon a time” to “eight years later” without the events or characters changing very much. It uses dream logic in narrative flow that can be described in terms of then-popular Freudianfree association, presenting a series of tenuously related scenes.
