*CANCELED* Adoor Gopalakrishnan at Union Cinema

April 4, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 4:00 pm CDT


Thank you for your interest in the Peck School of the Arts. We have canceled all public events at the Peck School of the Arts through July 24. Ticket sales are suspended until further notice for events occurring during the spring/summer 2020 semester.

Acclaimed Indian filmmaker Adoor Gopalakrishnan returns to UWM and the university’s Adoor Goplalakrishnan Archive and Research Fund, which is the official home of his award-winning film collection. Meet the filmmaker, celebrate his work and enjoy screenings of the documentary La Danse De L’Enchanteresse (Dance of the Enchantress, France, 2007, 72 minutes) and Nizhalkuthu (Shadow Kill, 2002, 90 minutes) in this remarkable afternoon of film appreciation and cultural connection for Milwaukee’s cinema and Kerala communities.

Cinemascope, Canada described Nizhalkuthu as: “The tale of a hangman in pre-independence India, Adoor Gopalakrishnan’s ‘Shadow Kill’ is, quite simply, extraordinary. In this narrative tour de force, Gopalakrishnan combines everything from turn of the century stage craft (two wealthy wags set the table through their desultory gossip), to a chilling, post–modern set piece, to a myth gone devastatingly wrong.”
