The Godfather of Zombiedom joins TIFF International programmer Colin Geddes on stage for a career-spanning survey of his five grisly decades at the forefront of American horror cinema.
As we kick off our retrospective Living Dread: The Cinema of
George A. Romero, the Godfather of Zombiedom himself joins
TIFF International Programmer Colin Geddes on Halloween
night for a celebration of his legendary career. A true maverick
of American independent cinema, Romero has worked outside
the mainstream studio system for over five decades as a writer,
producer and director of such groundbreaking horror classics as
Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Martin, The Crazies
and Creepshow, redefining the genre through a clever blend of
outrageous gore and radical social and political allegory.
