Zombi is a film series presented by Anjuli Raza Kolb in collaboration with the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research fall course ‘Zombi’ and the Politics of Representation, which follows zombies from their birthplace in the Caribbean to the US and beyond. We’ll look at three classic American zombie flicks and a recent French twist on the zombie and assess whether any radical potential remains in the figure of our most populous, inscrutable, and ineradicable monster. Join us for just the films or sign up for the course for a rich reading list and outstanding discussion. A short talkback will follow each screening.
Anjuli Raza Kolb is a lecturer at New York University and a doctoral candidate at Columbia, where she is writing a dissertation about epidemiology, horror, and terror.
