Summary In 1968 a young college drop-out named George A. Romero directed Night of the living dead, a low budget horror film that shocked the world, became an icon of the counterculture, and spawned a zombie industry worth billions of dollars that continues to this day. Birth of the living dead shows how Romero gathered an unlikely team of Pittsburghers - policemen, iron workers, teachers, ad-men, housewives and a roller-rink owner - to shoot a revolutionary guerrilla style film that went on to become a cinematic landmark, offering a profound insight into how our society worked in a singular time in American history. Featuring: George A. Romero; Gale Anne Hurd, executive producer, The walking dead; Larry Fessenden, filmmaker (The Last Winter, Beneath); Mark Harris, author, Pictures at a revolution; Elvis Mitchell, film critic, The New York Times & LA Weekly; Sam Pollard, Emmy-Award winning filmmaker; Jason Zinoman, film critic & author of Shock value; Bill Hinzman, Graveyard zombie from Night of the living dead.
