Kamloops Film Festival: What We Do in The Shadows
March 13, 2015 @ 9:00 pm
Directed by Jemaine Clement & Taika Waititi
In English and in German with English subtitles
In 2012, New Zealand’s most well-known documentarians, Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi teamed up to follow a group of Wellington-based Vampires. Yes, actual vampires. Real ones. The resulting film is a raw, unflinching look at the lives of the undead community, and no stone is left unturned; from hunting victims and draining them of their blood to more mundane activities like paying rent and keeping the house tidy. What We Do in the Shadows documents their struggles, fears, hopes and dreams, and asks the question – if your heart has turned cold and dead, are you actually dead? Obviously you are, but like, are you really really dead? Like really dead? Viago (379 years old), Deacon (183 years old), Vlad islav (862 years old), and Peter (8,000 years old) have chosen to share a flat in Wellington, New Zeal and unfortunately for them, it’s hard to make new friends due to their constant thirst for blood. Without any mortal chums left to invite them in to all of the hip establishments around town, they’ve lost touch with the current social scene. Can these creatures of the night put aside their differences as roommates and adapt to modern society? What We Do In The Shadows is a hysterical mockumentary that unearths a secret, supernatural society where friendship and camaraderie are just a s important as feasting upon the flesh of mortals.
