Hispanic Heritage Month activities continue this week with a screening of “Los Olvidados” (known in the U.S. as “The Young and the Damned”) on Thursday, Sept. 29, at 7 p.m. in McLane Hall, Room 121. The 80-min film (1950), presented on campus by Fresno State’s Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan (MEChA), is directed by Spanish filmmaker Luis Buñuel, who was a leader of avant-garde surrealism in his youth and a dominant international movie director later in life. The film, which won the Best Director award at the 1951 Cannes Film Festival, details the struggles of a group of destitute children living in a Mexico City slum. Admission is $3 ($5 for couples) that will benefit the Aztec Theater in Fresno’s Chinatown district. INFO: MEChA at firstname.lastname@example.org or 559.278.2782. Original press release.
