Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

The IUPUI Film Club presents:Surreal Double Feature - Bunuel’s The Exterminating Angel (1962) and Simon of the Desert (1965)

The wicked bourgeois horror film The Exterminating Angel is considered by many to be Buñuel’s crowning achievement. In the film, members of Mexico’s bourgeois are invited to a dinner party at a mansion and for some unexplained reason find themselves incapable of exiting the house by night’s end. The Exterminating Angel plays out like a perverted disaster flick. Simon of the Desert is Luis Buñuel’s wild take on the life of devoted ascetic Saint Simeon Stylites, who waited atop a pillar surrounded by a barren landscape for six years, six months, and six days, in order to prove his devotion to God. Yet the devil, in the figure of the beautiful Silvia Pinal, huddles below, trying to tempt him down.
