Meteletsa aka Winter of the Dead

Last year there were zombies in West Africa (The Dead 2011) and Germany (Rammbock 2011). This year there could be zombies in Cuba (Juan de los Muertos) as well as Russia.

The spread of the infection in the mainstream remains surprising because as a metaphor zombies are the antithesis of the mainstream. Nevertheless Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Born in the USA’ was anti-mainstream but that didn’t stop the Republicans2.

When the object of criticism celebrates the critique then art has been successful.

Meteletsa 2012 is set Mother Russia where the people are hard because they have to be. Quite frankly those zombies have no chance.

Release dates to be announced in the US and UK.
