Miami, March 8, 2012 - Hunger, government control and crumbling buildings – just when you thought nothing else could challenge Cubans…zombies invade. On Tuesday, Mar. 13, Miami Dade College’s (MDC) Tower Theater will present the U.S. commercial debut of director Alejandro Brugués’ new film, Juan of the Dead (Juan de los muertos). Brugués and the producer, Inti Herrera, will present the film at the 7:10 and 9:30 p.m. showings.           

As Havana is filled with flesh-eating zombies, Cuban media describe the situation as isolated incidents provoked by dissidents paid by the U.S. government. Juan, a 40-year-old slacker, and his group of friends come to the rescue. Juan soon realizes there is an upside to this situation: He can fight the living dead and make some money at it. He adopts the slogan, “We kill your beloved ones – at a reasonable price,” and so begins this great, hilarious adventure.
