Edmundo Nobile (Enrique Rambal) invites friends over for an opulent dinner party where mystery ensues.

Mexico | 95 min | DCP | Dir. Luis Buñuel

Edmundo Nobile (Enrique Rambal) invites friends over for an opulent dinner party. While the guests enjoy their food, the servants disappear one by one. Afterward, the visitors retire to the salon for an evening of music and conversation -- but in the morning, they are mysteriously incapable of leaving the room. As days go by and they run out of food and water, panic and madness set in.

"By small steps such as these, the great director Luis Bunuel traps us in the surrealistic universe of "The Exterminating Angel," his most bitter, most brilliant work since "Viridiana." -Roger Ebert (rogerebert.com)

This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
