Dave Dyment | Watching Night of the Living Dead
Watching Night of the Living Dead
Winnipeg, Canada: Platform Gallery, 2018
19 x 13.5 x 1.4 cm., 136 min Blu-Ray disc
Edition of 250
A feature length remake of the George Romero original (which debuted fifty years ago this month), in which characters from other films and television shows watch Night of the Living Dead on TV, at the cinema and at drive-ins.
Due to the omission of the copyright symbol on the early prints of the film, the work was never protected by copyright.
The Blu-Ray is available at the Platform booth at the Edition Art Fair this week, and the official launch is Monday October 29th, at the Revue Cinema, where the film will be screened followed by a brief Q&A. There will be door prizes and the concession stand is licensed.
