Description

The Forgotten Village is a 1941 American documentary film - some sources call it an ethnofiction film - directed by Herbert Kline and Alexander Hammid. The film was written by John Steinbeck, narrated by Burgess Meredith, and with music by Hanns Eisler. The film was released by the film distribution partnership of Arthur Mayer & Joseph Burstyn.

The New York State Board of Regents, acting as the state's board of censors, banned the film in New York due to the film's portrayal of childbirth and showing a baby at its mother's breast.

The film depicts the conflicts between traditional life in a Mexican village, and outsiders who want to introduce modernization.
