Bertrand Bonello's Footnotes to Zombi Child at Quad Cinema

"I Walked with a Zombie" by Jacques Tourneur

For over two decades, French filmmaker Bertrand Bonello has been immersing audiences in worlds and time periods spanning a fin-de-siècle bordello (House of Tolerance) to ‘70s haute couture (Saint Laurent). With his eighth feature, he explores mysterious practices that can bridge generations and hemispheres, the living and the… formerly living. As a warm-up to Zombi Child, opening at the Quad on January 24, Bonello has selected a series of titles that have inspired and informed his latest work. From ghastly demonic terrors in Georgetown to coolly occult activities in the Caribbean, swooning turn-of-the-century students to treasure-hunting ‘80s teens, we invite you to navigate currents both light and dark en route to Bonello’s bewitching new movie.
