In his exile through Mexico, the father of surreal cinema, Luis Buñuel (1900-1983), created one of the best motion-pictures in film history: the Mexican nonrealistic film entitled “Los olvidados” (The Forgotten Ones). The movie depicts the lives of two boys, surviving in the streets of a developing Mexico City. It is the story of the fatality of destiny, the absurdity, and irrationality of life itself.
This 1950’s film was recognized in Cannes as best-directed movie,and second among the best 100 Mexican Films.
