Birth of the Living Dead

In 1968 George A. Romero directed NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, a low budget horror film that shocked the world, became an icon of the counterculture, and spawned a zombie industry worth billions of dollars that continues to this day. BIRTH OF THE LIVING DEAD shows how Romero gathered an unlikely team of Pittsburghers to shoot a revolutionary guerrilla-style film that went on to become a cinematic landmark, offering a profound insight into how our society worked in a singular time in American history.
