Los Olvidados or The Forgotten Ones, known in the U.S. as The Young and the Damned, is a 1950 Mexican film directed by Luis Buñuel.
In Buñuel’s first and only documentary, he looks unflinchingly at the dehumanization created by poverty. His unsentimental, though ultimately compassionate view of Mexico City’s street children inspired any number of subsequent films, most notably Hector Babenco’s Pixote (1981). It earned Buñuel the Best Director award at the 1951 Cannes Film Festival.
