Birth of the Living Dead (18-Oct-2013)

Director: Rob Kuhns

Music: Brian Goss; Gary Pozner

Producer: Esther Cassidy

Keywords: Documentary, Filmmaking

Film director George Romero's making of Night of the Living Dead (1968), progenitor of the modern zombie film yet produced on a shoestring budget. While Romero's interview is prominent here, perhaps too much of this documentary's time is spent on less interesting aspects such as Living Dead's social aspects, which have already been hashed elsewhere.
