Los Olvidados (The Young and the Damned/The Forgotten Ones)
Sat., March 2, 8 p.m. 2013
A treasure of the international cinema canon and winner of 11 of Mexico's top film prizes — including Best Cinematography for Gabriel Figueroa and Best Director for Luis Buñuel — Los Olvidados is a master work of both social realism and social surrealism. Figueroa's aptitude for capturing shadow and visually unearthing Mexico City's dark underbelly makes possible Buñuel's unflinching look at this group of street urchins, their dreams, and their sins. Shown in conjunction with Frida & Diego exhibition at High.
