NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEEPWATER HORIZON
A Gulf Coast Oil Spill Zombie Flick
(2M/3F) | 45 minutes
Part puppet show, part zombie movie, this docu-drama/slasher flick mash-up combines first-hand accounts, newsreel footage and lo-fi charm to explore the 2010 Gulf Coast Oil Spill through the lens of George Romero’s original Night of the Living Dead. A foxy boxing match that is both slippery and toxic!
