The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) will be screening Los Olvidados (The Young and the Damned), a film directed and co-written by Spanish-born filmmaker Luis Buñuel from January 25-27. The 1950 film tells about a group of impoverished children and their hard and crime-filled life in the slums of Mexico City. Although the film is done in the style of social realism, it also has touches of surrealism, which is present in majority of the esteemed director’s work (like Un Chien Andalou, which he made with Salvador Dali). During the 1951 Cannes Film Festival, the film earned Buñuel the Best Director award.
