The movie

Hikari, Takemura, Ishi and Ikuko share the same tragic fate: they’ve all become orphans recently. They decide to fight off their sadness by creating a rock band. A pop deflagration.

Unable to come to terms with their parents’ death, four orphans decide to create a rock band. Japanese director Nagahisa Makoto’s relentless, colourful film feels like a video game that’s overflowing with ideas. At its core, We Are Little Zombies reflects on the anxiety of a youth that no longer believes in anything and takes nothing seriously – not even death. Inventive and intoxicating!
