Synopsis

Co-presented with the Luis Buñuel Film Institute: Double Feature: THAT OBSCURE OBJECT OF DESIRE (CET OBSCUR OBJET DU DÉSIR), 1977, Rialto Pictures, 102 min. The acclaimed final film from director Luis Buñuel stars Fernando Rey as a wealthy older man who fruitlessly pursues a beautiful dancer (played by both Carole Bouquet and Angela Molina) during a terrorist insurgency. In French and Spanish with English subtitles. THE YOUNG AND THE DAMNED (LOS OLVIDADOS), 1950, Kino International, 85 min. Having directed only a handful of for-hire Mexican films in the multiple-decade interim since L’AGE D’OR and LAND WITHOUT BREAD, Spanish refugee Luis Buñuel’s 1950 return to iconoclastic form is this razor-sharp, no-holds-barred docudrama. Teenage delinquent Jaibo (Roberto Cobo), fresh out of a reformatory stint, returns to the savage streets of Mexico City to head up a gang of undesirables who beat up beggars, snatch purses and loiter.
