The San Diego Latino Film Festival kicks off its yearly Cinema en tu Idioma series tomorrow with director Alejandro Brugués' Cuban zombie romp, Juan of the Dead.
In order to survive a massive zombie flare-up, Juan and his band of motley miscreants are forced to devise some revolutionary acts of capitalism.
Juan took home the Silver Raven award at the Brussels International Festival of Fantasy Film "for its inventive setting and sense of humor, and especially the performance of (its) lead actor."
Juan of the Dead screens for one-week only exclusively at UltraStar Mission Valley Cinemas at Hazard Center. Daily showtimes times are: 11:30am, 1:45pm, 4:00pm, 8:30pm, and 10:45pm.
If zombies aren't your thing, there are still two other features coming our way including the heartfelt Argentine comedy Un Cuento Chino (September 7-13) and the latest work from renowned director, Carlos Saura (and audience favorite from SDLFF 2011), the performance film Flamenco, Flamenco (October 5-11).
Tickets for all screenings are $10.00 General Audience $8.00 Students, Seniors, and Media Arts Center San Diego members. Click for more information.
