ZOMBILLENIUM                                       
by Arthur de Pins & Alexis Ducord
3D Animation - France, Belgium - 2017 - 80min

Zombillenium is an amusement park like no other : only genuine werewolves, vampires, zombies are employed there… for eternity. One day, Hector, a young compliance officer, comes to control the park's safety and threatens to shut it down. Francis, the vampire who manages the park, has no choice but to bite him to protect his business. And so Hector is hired, and could well be Zombillenium’s last chance : attendance figures are down and he could become the new attraction the park needs to avoid bankruptcy. But deep down Hector longs for his young daughter, Lucy, who’s waiting for him back in the 'real' world...

In order to confront the ghosts that haunt him, Palestinian director Raed Andoni assembles an eclectic group of ex-prisoners to build a replicate of Al-Moskobiya, Israel's main interrogation centre, where he was himself jailed at age 18. From fragmentary memory, day after day, they give shape to the interrogation centre they all experienced, and re-enact its stories. As the walls of the cells rise, the tongues and the emotions loosen.

The lessons given to the teenager by the old guard will give rise to a relationship not unlike the old legends of educating a king (for the “Rey” of his name, meaning “king”). But the agreement will start to fall apart when the loose ends of the robbery Reynaldo had participated in start wrapping themselves round them…
