Juan of the Dead / Juan de los muertos

  • In Spanish
  • 100 mins

Returning to our screens following our ¡Viva! Festival preview, this zombie comedy horror brings Cuban independent filmmaking to an international audience.

Juan is a forty-year-old slacker living a laid-back life in Havana with his close-knit group of friends: Lázaro, Vladi, El Chino and El Primo. When violence springs up around the city, and inhabitants start to attack one another, talk of a political dissident uprising is rife. But Juan and his gang soon discover their enemy is more dangerous than any ideological opponent, and armed with some home-made weapons and the desire to make a quick buck, Juan sets out to rid Havana of the undead.

UK Premiere? I don’t think so, seeing as it was the closing film at Day of the Dead in Leeds International Film Festival LAST NOVEMBER! You’re only 4 months behind…

Hi Martin, we meant preview not premiere? Sorry a mistake on our part. It’s correct in our festival brochure. Anyway what did you make of the film? It was a hit with our audiences and we’ll be bringing it back in late May/eary June if you want a second view.

Really looking forward to seeing this – There have been so many variations of the Zombie movie genre, I think it’ll be interesting to see a latino spin on it.
