Digital presentation - Otto is a handsome, sensitive, neo-Goth zombie with an identity crisis. He wanders the streets of the city, never sleeping, until one day he auditions for a zombie film. The director, revolutionary Medea Yarn, is convinced that Otto is the personification of the effects of advanced capitalism on individuals. Medea begins making a film about Otto, while simultaneously shooting a film about a gay zombie revolt against consumerist society. As Medea directs the final, orgiastic scene of her film, Otto struggles to access the human emotions buried beneath his zombie exterior. Director Bruce LaBruce toys with genre conventions, combining different media, and making use of Medea’s humorous film-within-the-film, while creating a new, sexy, hyper-politicized zombie mythology.
