Zombie Love

When: Fri., Oct. 3, 6-8 p.m. 2014

It’s officially October, so be prepared for an influx of all things spooky. This first Friday, Sistah Sinema, a national film group that showcases movies about and for queer women of color, is offering a first taste of that spookiness — and the featured flavor is brains. Zombie Love is a free series of four zombie-themed short films featuring queer women of color. The screenings will take place at The New Parkway (474 24th St. Oakland), in conjunction with its monthly First Friday Shorts program and will be followed by a post-film Q&A with two of the filmmakers. Filmed in Oakland, the featured A Night in the Woods tells the story of a gender non-conforming person of color and a young woman who are forced to reconcile their differences while stuck in the woods, waiting out the zombie apocalypse. Book of Lilith, also filmed in the Bay Area, follows Lilith as she attempts to lead a group of apocalypse survivors to salvation on Alcatraz Island. This zombie film fest will give audiences something to mentally chew on that isn’t just people.
