Cinema Libre Studios alerted Fango that it will release Grace Lee’s undead mockumentary AMERICAN ZOMBIE to theaters next year, beginning with a New York debut March 28 to be followed by playdates in other cities.
The movie, which played this year’s Slamdance and South by Southwest festivals among others, has writer/director Lee and fellow non-fiction filmmaker John Solomon (playing themselves) setting out to capture the struggles of Revenants, i.e. high-functioning zombies, living and working in Los Angeles. Particular attention is paid to Joel, founder of ZAG (Zombie Advocacy Group), who devotes his unlife to achieving equal rights for the walking deceased and fighting the negative stereotypes created by the movies and other media.
