Opening Night

Q&A with co-director Jemaine Clement, followed by a vampire costume party open to all ticket holders!

Kiwi collaborators Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement have double-handedly reinvented the worn-out mockumentary genre with What We Do in the Shadows, which they co-wrote, co-directed, and co-star in. It features four vampire roommates who reveal to us—or rather the camera crew that’s documenting them—the details of their nocturnal life. Ranging in age from 183 to 8,000, and in appearance from adorably youthful to Nosferatu-crusty, this endearingly unhip bunch squabble over household chores, go to clubs, struggle to keep up with the latest technology and fashion trends, and antagonize the local werewolves whenever their paths cross. But, don’t forget, they’re also fang-bearing fiends, and the film doesn’t shy away from carnage. Bloody, hilarious, and ultra-quotable, this brilliant horror-comedy that wins every festival audience award its eligible for demands repeat viewings. Following the screening, join us for a vampire-themed Halloween celebration! A Unison Films/Paladin release.
