For over ten years now, marches have been organised in the streets of many cities in which people wear latex prostheses and bloody make-up for the simple pleasure of being a living-dead or to protest against the individuality of Western societies. Taking a closer look at zombie movies since the 1960’s allows us to document the evolution of our most visceral fears. And finally, returning to the zombie source brings back a dark chapter of our history, namely, slavery.

Amélie Pepin is a professor of Literature at the Collège de Valleyfield and published a book on the subject in 2013: Zombie – Le mort-vivant autopsié (Autopsy of the Living-Dead). Based on her writings, she will address the zombie phenomenon not as a fad but as a creation symbolizing Man’s greatest fear: himself.

Amélie Pepin’s book will be on sale at the festival.
