We Are Little Zombies

Opens Friday, July 10

When four young orphans–Hikari, Ikuko, Ishi, and Takemura–first meet, their parents’ bodies are being turned into dust, like fine Parmesan atop a plate of spaghetti Bolognese, and yet none of them can shed a tear. They are like zombies; devoid of all emotion. With no family, no future, no dreams, and no way to move forward, the young teens decide that the first level of this new existence involves salvaging a gaming console, an old electric bass, and a charred wok from their former homes–just enough to start a band… and then conquer the world. Tragedy, comedy, music, social criticism, and teenage angst are all subsumed in this eccentric cinematic tsunami.

2019. 120 minutes. Drama/Musical/Comedy. NR.

“Explosively ingenious and energetic…”


“Exuberance and visual inventiveness seem to come to Nagahisa as naturally as breathing.”

Hollywood Reporter

“A visual funhouse, full of surrealistic images, lurid colors and lead by four cartoonishly very stoic leads.”
