WASHINGTON FILM INSTITUTE cordially invites you to get in the Halloween Spirit at a NEW ZEALAND FILM NIGHT featuring the Scarily Funny Film: WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS.
KIWI VAMPIRE COMEDY:
"WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS"
96 minutes / Directors: Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi, Writers: Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi, Stars: Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi, Cori Gonzalez-Macuer
WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS chronicles the adventures of four vampire roommates trying to get by in a modern world that’s not always hospitable to the undead. Clement and Waititi, creators of the HBO hit series “Flight of the Conchords,” co-wrote, co-directed, and co-star in this hilarious send-up in which an endearingly unhip quartet of friends reveal to us or, rather, to the documentary crew that’s filming them, the details of their daily-make that nightly-routine. Ranging in age from 183 to 8,000, and in appearance from adorably youthful to Nosferatu-crusty, they squabble over household chores, struggle to keep up….
“If Twilight made you queasy and Dark Shadows felt like a missed opportunity, this pitch-perfect genre spoof is worth relishing.” – Claudia Puig, USA Today
“The New Zealand-made art comedy What We Do in the Shadows is a bracing reminder of how the right burst of energy and style breathes fresh ideas into a genre threatened with creative exhaustion.hot and beautifully performed, cuts its storybook tone with starker, more brutal truths.” – Patrick Z. McGavin, Chicago Sun-Times
