In a run-down, abandoned warehouse a zombie film is in the making. Out of nowhere, ‘real’ zombies suddenly appear. Beginning with a long one-take shot, the film then completely switches direction and turns the zombie genre into an almost friendly comedy.

Program Note

This film is the winner of the Yubari Film Festival. If you were a big fan of films, you should watch it, regardless if it was in the comic horror genre. The staff and actors are shooting a zombie movie in an abandoned military facility during World War II and are each infected during a real zombie attack. To make matters worse, the mad director continues to shoot the film. The makeup artist, who knows the secrets of the facility is also more brutal than the zombie because of his survival instinct. In fact, this 35-minute long take of the found footage format and one scene-one cut are a fake ary directed by Takayuki. He originally completed this for the opening of a horror channel. 30 minutes of the movie is about the staff’s struggling during real-time shooting process. This is unique space-time frame story structure; the remaining 30 minutes of the film depicts the production process. This film seems like a fake ary, by a fake ary makers, for fake ary watchers, but there is laughter, joy and touching feelings regarding family, teamwork, the filmmaker’s pathos, video industry, the process of production, and the philosophy of film. Japanese emotions, which are their real thoughts and expressions are the main ideas and motives of the film. The director uses metaphors, zombies are expressions and real thoughts are the discussion of films and television shows. The great birth of the movie, a work that is a homage of itself.
