Juan of the Dead

Returning to our screens following our ¡Viva! Festival preview, this zombie comedy horror brings Cuban independent filmmaking to an international audience.

Juan is a forty-year-old slacker living a laid-back life in Havana with his close-knit group of friends: Lázaro, Vladi, El Chino and El Primo. When violence springs up around the city, and inhabitants start to attack one another, talk of a political dissident uprising is rife. But Juan and his gang soon discover their enemy is more dangerous than any ideological opponent, and armed with some home-made weapons and the desire to make a quick buck, Juan sets out to rid Havana of the undead.
