In 1965, three years before the release of George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead, in Tucumán, director Ofelio Linares Montt shot Zombies in the Sugar Cane Field, a horror film with strong politi- cal allegories. The film opened in the us to great success, but when it was time for its Argentine release, in the midst of Onganía's regime, things went south and all trace of the film was lost. Following Lu- ciano Saracino, a writer in search for the film's original screenplay, Schembri's documentary researches the steps of this cursed classic, with a few surviving images and testimonies of critics, filmmakers and the beloved Isabel Sarli. At the end, an idea is summoned: aren't there too many "coincidences" between Linares Montt's and George A. Romero's films?
