USA | 90 min | NR | 35mm | Dir. Jorge Michel GrauWhen the patriarch of the family passes away, the teenage children must take responsibility for the family chores: the preparation of the rituals, the hunting and putting the all-important meat on the table. These newfound responsibilities are even more daunting, however, when you live in the city and happen to be a family of cannibals. (IMDb)"An unexpectedly rich exploration of family bonds, blood rituals and the oftentimes zombie-like desire to assume the roles proscribed to each of us, played out with a sharp undertow of political allegory and darkly comic sensibility." - Mark Olsen (LA Times)This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
