SYNOPSIS The Exterminating Angel (1962)
After a lavish dinner party, a group of high-society friends retire to the salon for an evening of music and conversation. A few hours later, they find they are mysteriously incapable of leaving the room. Days go by. Food and water run out. Panic and madness set in. The police and army come to the rescue, but are unable to enter the house. Full of eerie comic absurdity, the film continues Buñuel’s critique of the frivolous rituals and dependencies of the upper classes.

In light of recent events, I thought ‘The Exterminating Angel’ would set the perfect surrealist image to make us re-think our surroundings. It will in addition give new meaning to upcoming dinner parties and family gatherings surrounding the holidays. Luis Buñuel is one of the few filmmakers I found in the beginning of my artistic career that left his personal mark in how I view the world and how I want to make films. An early member of the surrealist movement, he spent a lifetime turning society on its head and inside out, exposing itself to itself, an image it may certainly not want to see.

THE SPACE

Magick City is a multidisciplinary private venue hidden away at the very tip of Greenpoint. Its prime function is a small batch kombucha factory, however it is also equipped with a beautiful Klipshorn sound system, the original flooring of the old Roseland ballroom, and a custom designed portal at the entrance. A special space, it rewards anyone who finds themselves there with a unique experience.  

THE CHEF
As a lawyer in Sydney,
Xinyi looked to food and cooking as a means of escapism and creative expression, cooking and baking for friends, special events and weddings. Since moving to New York, and into a career in food, she has worked at El Rey, Morgenstern's and Dudley's, and is now at Union Square Hospitality Group. She cooks and bakes for people and causes she believes in, and continues to seek out opportunities to cook good food with good people.
