See this film: Los Olvidados @ the HFA

Driven from his native Spain by the Franco dictatorship, unable to find refuge within the Hollywood studio system, Luis Buñuel settled quite nicely in the rough-and-ready Mexican film industry. There over the course of 35 years he made some of his most powerful and enigmatic films. The Harvard Film Archive opens its Buñuel in Mexico series with one of the best, Los Olvidados (1950), a brutally honest, rigorously compassionate, and sneakily surreal study of disaffected youth undone by grinding poverty and a heartless society.
