Films at Phyllis Straus: Juan of the Dead + Q&A with Alejandro Brugués

Published November 9, 2015

FSU Art’s Phyllis Straus Gallery cordially invites you for the final screening of the Films at Phyllis Straus series.

We’ll be showing the Cuban horror/comedy Juan of the Dead written and directed Alejandro Brugués, who will be joining us via Skype for an exclusive Q&A after the film.’
Synopsis:
Juan is a slacker who is trying to reconnect with his daughter, who is planning to rejoin her mother in Miami. Lazaro, Juan’s friend, is trying to connect with his own son, a persistent womanizer. They begin to notice that the locals are “going crazy,” through killing people and eating their flesh. The recently deceased are also returning to life. The Cuban government and the media claim that the zombies are dissidents who are revolting against the government. Juan decides to start a business to profit off of killing the zombies, but the group may soon find their own lives at risk.
