ZOMBIE ISLAND
Friday 4 April, 6:15

Zombie Island

Two grave looters flee the angry villagers and sail to a desolate island only to encounter a greater foe – a swarm of zombie pirates. The hungry undead were originally hired by an American scientist to kidnap the descendents of the island’s natives to help him read ancient scripture and find a mysterious meteorite. With their greedy nature, the pirates stole the meteorite from Seabrook thinking it was something of value. That is, until they were all infected by the contagious alien virus inside the meteorite!

Lamb Of God's Documentary
AS THE PALACES BURN

4 - 6 April in Cape Town / 4 - 6 & 12 April + 1 May in Johannesburg

Lamb Of God As The Palaces Burn

( courtesy Specticast & in conjunction with RAMfest )

AS THE PALACES BURN is a feature-length documentary that originally sought to follow LAMB OF GOD and their fans throughout the world, to demonstrate how music ties us together when we can't find any other common bond. However, during the filming process in 2012, the story abruptly took a dramatic turn, bringing the band into a Kafkaesque nightmare, when lead singer Randy Blythe was arrested on charges of manslaughter, blamed for the death of one of their young fans in the Czech Republic. What followed was a heart-wrenching courtroom drama that left fans, friends, and curious onlookers around the world on the edge of their seats.
Filming took place in Colombia, Venezuela, Mexico, India, Israel, and the United States.
African Premiere
( see trailer below )

The film will include a new / pre-recorded Q&A with the band members that will be available exclusively to audiences attending the global theatrical screenings.
Audience give-aways will include Lamb Of God CDs, posters & a copy of As The Palaces Burn (10th anniversary CD) autographed by the band!
