Les Vues Free Film Series: Sam and Mattie Make a Zombie Movie

October 25, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Our Les Vues Documentary Film Series is held on the last Monday of each month. The event is curated by filmmakers, artists, documentarians, and historians from across Louisiana. Screened films range from documentaries to animations focusing on various aspects of culture, history, or the environment. Each screening is followed by a discussion between the audience and the filmmaker or regional experts.
Just in time for Halloween, we’ll be screening “Sam and Mattie Make a Zombie Movie” -a perfect fit for the spooky season! Sam and Mattie, two badass best friends with Down syndrome, rally the entire town of Providence RI to help them storyboard, script, produce, cast, and star in their own dream movie: ‘Spring Break Zombie Massacre.’ This documentary follows them along the process of writing, directing, producing, and performing as part of their (extremely violent) dream film! This 10+ year adventure shatters disability stereotypes, champions the independent spirit, features over 70 gallons of fake blood, and culminates in the ultimate payoff: presenting “SPRING BREAK ZOMBIE MASSACRE” to the public for the first time.
