CHIEF ZABU + Filmmaker Q&A!
November 2 @ 9:00 pm
“Missing for 30 years, a Trumpian satire finds its pop-culture moment” Sun-Sentinel
“Wonderfully written, nut-job hilarious, and more politically relevant than ever. Would make Bunuel very proud.” Cinema Samurai
In 1986 two first-time directors shot, but never completed CHIEF ZABU, a low budget indie comedy about a New York real estate developer who dreams of political influence. Last year, inspired by the rise of Donald Trump, the filmmakers finally finished their film that The Hollywood Reporter now calls “A Comic Time Capsule with a Timeless Punch” and Peter Bogdanovich says is “Outrageous! Funny! Funny! Funny!” Unavailable on DVD or streaming, CHIEF ZABU makes its one-night-only/one-screening-only Brooklyn debut here at VIDEOLOGY!
Dir. Zack Norman & Neil Cohen. Shot 1986 – Finished 2016. 75 min.
