“The Dead Don’t Die” Screening & Talk

The writer-director Jim Jarmusch on his new film

Melena Ryzik, New York Times culture reporter, hosts an advance screening of Jim Jarmusch’s new zombie comedy film, “The Dead Don’t Die,” followed by a Q&A with the writer-director.

Selected for the prestigious opening spot at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, “The Dead Don’t Die” takes place in the peaceful town of Centerville, which finds itself battling a zombie horde as the dead start rising from their graves. The film’s all-star lineup — “the greatest zombie cast ever disassembled” — includes Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover, Rosie Perez, Iggy Pop, RZA, Selena Gomez, Carol Kane and Tom Waits.

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to hear iconic New York City filmmaker Jarmusch (“Only Lovers Left Alive,” “Coffee and Cigarettes,” “Down by Law,” “Stranger Than Paradise”) discuss bringing the wry, rad vision he has honed over three decades of indie filmmaking to a whole new genre with a large ensemble cast that includes many repeat collaborators.
