Once referred to by George A. Romero as the "lower class citizens of the monster world", zombies have gained increasing popularity in film in recent times. We are taking the increased presence of zombies as the incentive to hold a zombie evening on 30 August. Film and media studies scholars Michael Fürst, Florian Krautkrämer and Serjoscha Wiemer are presenting their book "Untot. Zombie Film Theorie", which brings together numerous articles on the theory and history of the zombie film. The thematic spectrum runs from Jacques Tourneur via George Romero to Bruce LaBruce. Two recent zombie films will be screened after the book presentation: Bruce LaBruce's second gay zombie film L.A. ZOMBIE is a typical mix of sex, violence and social criticism. JUAN OF THE DEAD (A. Brugués, Cuba 2011) is one of the newest zombie films, a bloody comedy celebrating the new revolution which has zombies conquer Havana.
