For your participation, you'll receive free admission to the special exhibition Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Mexican Modernism from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection and a Mexican Modernism family art kit.

    6-9pm
  • Los Olvidados (The Young and the Damned) / Film Screening and Discussion

    Stiller Auditorium

    Screening of Los Olvidados (The Young and the Damned), the Luis Buñuel film from 1950. A group of juvenile delinquents live a violent and crime-filled life in the festering slums of Mexico City, and the morals of young Pedro are gradually corrupted and destroyed by the others. 

    When Luis Buñel's Los Olvidados screened in Mexico in 1950, it met with widespread criticism. Because of its neo-realism, it wasn't fully accepted until he won the 1951 Cannes Best Director award. The film's surrealistic elements share something with Kahlo's vision, but the overriding naturalism makes for an interesting distinction from Mexican modernism. 

    This screening will be followed by a post-screening discussion led by Karen Davis, a film historian and lecturer who has led film discussions at the Movies of Delray and Lake Worth, The Living Room Theatre in Boca Raton, a moderator for The Cinema Club in Deerfield Beach, and a past lecturer (Hollywood Musicals) at The Norton Museum. A former director of the Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival and the PB Film Series, she has been an advisor to and film programmer for other film festivals.
