JUAN DE LOS MUERTOS / JUAN OF THE DEAD
A film by Alejandro Burgués
(2011 | Spain/Cuba | Action/Comedy/Horror | English Subtitles | 92 min.)
Juan is a slacker trying to reconnect with his daughter, who plans 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 locals are “going crazy”, killing people and eating their flesh, and the recently deceased are returning to life. The Cuban government and the media claim that the zombies are dissidents revolting against the government. Juan starts a business to profit off of killing the zombies, but the group may soon find their own lives at risk.
About HFFNY: The Havana Film Festival New York (HFFNY) echoes the mission of the Havana Film Festival in Cuba (Festival Internacional del Nuevo Cine Latinoamericano) by acting as a platform for films from Central and South America, the Caribbean and Mexico as well as Latino films from the U.S. that lack the recognition they deserve. A project of the American Friends of the Ludwig Foundation of Cuba (AFLFC), HFFNY is proud to represent the largest collection of Cuban films and showcase those Latino cinematic gems that are rarely screened in the U.S.
