Luis Buñuel / MX, 1950 / 85 min.
Luis Buñuel made his international comeback in the world of film with his now classic Los Olvidados (‘The Forgotten Ones’). His raw vision of the life of destitute juvenile delinquents exposed to extreme violence in Mexico City won the Best Director Award at Cannes.
This winter, Eye Filmmuseum is presenting a major exhibition of work by the Belgian-Mexican artist Francis Alÿs. Alÿs is primarily known for his playful videos that are both engaged and poetic. These imaginative and rich observations of daily life are set in sometimes politically-charged moments and places. A big spatial installation at Eye provides the setting for his impressive series Children’s Games.
