NEWS: DVD Release: Los Olvidados

It is now sixty years since Luis Buñuel’s visceral depiction of life in Mexico’s slums stunned audiences at the Cannes Film Festival in 1951, winning Best Director and relaunching the filmmaker’s career after a twenty-year hiatus. "3DD Home Entertainment is proud to bring Los Olvidados to UK DVD" with this 60th Anniversary Edition.

The film tells the story of an unloved teenage boy, Pedro, who fights to turn his life around against the circumstances of extreme poverty, and the sinister influence of an older boy, El Jaibo.

“Unflinchingly honest, at times surreal and ultimately heartbreaking, Los Olividados is a transcendently original, game-changing piece of cinema from one of the medium’s true masters who was praised by Alfred Hitchcock as the best director ever.”
