Horror of the Humanities VII: "Hereditary"

The DHC’s seventh annual Halloween event features a screening and celebration of Ari Aster’s contemporary masterpiece, Hereditary. As always, the avant-garde “Haunted House” will have nearly two-dozen exhibits, including, this year, stations where guests can have their tarot cards read, meet a “real” ghost, take home a free silhouette portrait of their shadow self, have horrific poetry written on-the-spot on a topic of their choosing, encounter our animated exorcist, and generally learn about the horrors of everyday life as well as those within the history of the humanities. New this year is a séance stage-show in which a spirit of a great humanist from the past will be conjured, manifesting and interacting with audience members in Student Center 120. King Paimon demands: Come for the sacrificial beheadings; stay for the free candy! ​​

I thought that all the interview questions were not good. He kept on asking Ari questions that were more ideas and references to other things than questions about him and his process. I would have loved to know about future projects and why he chose the actors, not what he thinks about some philosophical idea.
