Cent une tueries de zombies
Film Installation

132 - TIFF Bell Lightbox
350 King Street West

In the 21st century, zombies have overrun our society. Since George Romero's Night of the Living Dead in 1968, they have been feasting on our collective consciousness and are now in the mainstream of film, television and popular culture.

Cent une tueries de zombies is a looped visual installation compilation of 101 "death" scenes of zombies from cinema and television. The scenes are a combination of classical hard-cut Eisensteinian montage and De Palma-inspired split-screen. By playing with the cause-and-effect and time-space of specific scenes, there will be an added level of physical tension and drama to the proceedings.

Drop in anytime from 7 p.m. through 7 a.m. and catch all 101 "kills" in their horrific glory.

Admittance will be restricted to those 18 years of age or older.

If they were zombies, Geddes would prefer a demise that is a little bit country, while Lane wants a death that is a little bit rock 'n' roll.
