See what critics are saying about We Are Little Zombies, a film about tragedy, comedy, music, social criticism, and teenage angst.
“Smart, noisy and flashily assured, "We Are Little Zombies" is entirely, gleefully its own thing.” - New York Times

“A visual funhouse, full of surrealistic images, lurid colors and lead by four cartoonishly very stoic leads.” - RogerEbert.com

Digital Gym Cinema Presents: WE ARE LITTLE ZOMBIES

Now playing: We Are Little Zombies! Directed by Makoto Nagahisa, this story follows four young orphans who first meet as their parents’ bodies are being turned into dust, yet none of them can shed a tear. In their zombie like state, the young teens decide that the first level of this new existence involves salvaging a gaming console, an old electric bass, and a charred wok from their former homes—just enough to start a band-and then conquer the world.
