A zombie film that takes place during the Civil Rights era, Velvet Road is filmmaker L. Gustavo Cooper’s One Spark entry #318. Located in the MOCA lobby, Cooper hopes to garner support and funding to make the short into a full-length feature. When asked how the event has been going for his entry, Cooper says, “Some people have been really enthusiastic and some have been weary that it’s a zombie film. But once I describe the story and that it takes place during the Civil Rights era, they get excited.” Velvet Road will be shown Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at Underbelly.
