SPUTNIK! (Horror Documentary)
While Catalonia is currently in the news with a call for independence from Spain, SPUTNIK! looks at independence of a whole different kind.
Jacint loves horror, gore and trash movies, for years making low budget indie short films whenever he can.
And now he has a dream: make a full length feature film!
With little money but a whole lot of energy, tenacity and passion, he set out to make Zombi Infection in his Spanish Catalonean home town, with friends, family and half the town pitching in to make it a reality.
An inspiring, entertaining and very often funny documentary on guerrilla filmmaking with interviews including Jacint, his many collaborators and a wide range of other genre filmmakers and enthusiasts (some including filmmakers whose movies have screened at past South African HorrorFest events).
(While we only have the SA HorrorFest here at home) the filmmakers also look into the many popular Horror film festivals across Spain, the enthusiasm infectious.
Rebel / Underground filmmaking at its purest!
Directed by Asier Abio
