grace lee's american zombie opens in los angeles

If you're in Los Angeles, Grace Lee's mockumentary of the undead, American Zombi makes its theatrical debut this Friday from Cinema Libre. The filmmaker who brought you the inventive, hugely entertaining personal documentary The Grace Lee Project comes back at you a very different sort of tale... The film follows the struggles and exploits of a community of zombies--yes, the dead-but-alive--currently living, working, and just trying to get by in Los Angeles. It's a creative, humorous take on the flagging zombie genre, with some great characters grappling with very unique notions of identity and acceptance. It's good stuff.

The movie opens this Friday, March 28, for one week only at the Laemmle's Sunset 5 in West Hollywood. Showtimes are 12:30, 2:50, 5:10, 7:30, 10:00. Director Grace Lee and the film's cast will be in attendance for a special Q&A on Friday, March 28 and Saturday, March 29 after the 7:30pm showing. I highly recommend checking it out, as it's definitely not the kind of film that comes along every day.

As a special promotion, Cinema Libre is offering a special discount ticket, good for opening weekend only. You can see American Zombie for just $6.00. Six bucks! I believe tickets are normally ten dollars at the Laemmle Sunset. Just present the printable coupon at the box office, and you'll save yourself a little cash.
