Juan of The Dead with Alejandro Brugués
Play • 1 hr 41 min

Jonah grabs an oar and dives into Juan of The Dead with writer/director Alejandro Brugués!

Alejandro grew up in Havana during the Cold War, but his parents' work as diplomats gave him access to an outside world—including American movies—unavailable to most Cubans. He tells Jonah about writing a zombie movie for an audience that had never seen zombie movies, filming social commentary under close government scrutiny, paying homage to his cinematic heroes, and the opening scene of a hypothetical Juan sequel!
