The Young and the Damned (9-Dec-1950)

Original Title: Los Olvidados

Director: Luis Bu˝uel

Writers: Luis Alcoriza; Luis Bu˝uel

Keywords: Crime, Mexico

Hyper-realistic portrait of street children in Mexico City. It stands in stark contrast to all Mexican cinema produced up to this point. Deemed insulting to Mexican culture, on release it spent only 4 days in theaters and did not return until after its triumph as Cannes, where Bu˝uel won Best Director.
