Some time ago I watched the wonderful movie Little Ashes, a fictionalized account of the friendship of three of the most charismatic and influential Spanish artists of the twentieth century: Federico García Lorca, Salvador Dalí and Luís Buñuel. The three artists met at the Students Residence in Madrid in the 1920s.

This video offers a reenactment of this friendship through readings of extracts from letters the three young men exchanged at the time.

Please watch and enjoy.
