George Romero's zombie original goes under the knife for a special Halloween edition of Cinema Dissection. Night of the Living Dead captivates with it's brilliantly paced story, shocking visuals, and surprising social commentary that may of may not have been intended when it was shot. With the expert facilitation of UW Professor Jennifer Bean, audiences will get under the surface (scene-by-scene and sometimes shot-by-bloody-shot) of what makes this a classic horror masterpiece.
Cinema Dissection affords film lovers an exciting opportunity to dig deeper into the films that they love. Inspired by Roger Ebert's annual Cinema Interruptus in Boulder, CO, attendees will participate with a facilitator in a six hour scene-by-scene, and sometimes shot-by-shot, deconstruction of the featured film. While the facilitator will certainly share their thoughts, anyone in the audience may call out ‘Stop' and either ask a question of the group or make an observation around a certain shot or moment in the film.
