THE EXTERMINATING ANGEL

The Exterminating Angel

Friday, February 21 - Sunday, February 23, 2020

A group of high-society friends are invited to a mansion for dinner and inexplicably find themselves unable to leave in Luis Buñuel’s daring masterpiece THE EXTERMINATING ANGEL (El ángel exterminador). Made just one year after his international sensation Viridiana, this film, full of eerie, comic absurdity, furthers Buñuel’s wicked takedown of the rituals and dependencies of the frivolous upper classes.

Screening as part of our Winter 2020 series, “Weekend Classics: Luis Buñuel.”
