Cinematic legend Luis Bunuel directs this absurdist short film that follows the travails of a pious Catholic man who sets out to prove his devotion to God by living atop a column for six years, six months and six days. Inspired by the tale of St. Simeon Stylites, Bunuel's satire takes square aim at the institution of religion - a recurring theme found in many of the director's most popular works, including The Exterminating Angel and L'Age d'Or.
