SYNOPSIS

FREE | TICKET REQUIRED | FILM SCREENS SEPARATELY


Brains, brains, brains! The Undead are having a contemporary cultural renaissance and our addiction to these ghouls shows no signs of returning to the grave. The nightmarish notion of the dead rising is inherently horrifying and equally fascinating. Kristy Matheson (Director of Film, ACMI) will be joined by Dr Mark Ryan (Senior Lecturer, School of Creative Practice, Queensland University of Technology) and author and critic Dr Alexandra Heller-Nicholas as they explore the zombie trope and the deliciously twisty ways in which different filmmakers revisit this genre. Join us as we look to the humour and horror of these fantastic modern takes on the genre.
