“What We Do in the Shadows”
Presented by Two Star Symphony

An award-winning comic mockumentary about a group of vampire roommates in New Zealand, What We Do in the Shadows uncovers hilarity in the mundane. Viago (Taika Waititi), Deacon (Jonny Brugh), and Vladislav (Jemaine Clement) struggle with the everyday responsibilities of modern life: paying rent, keeping up with the chores, trying to get into nightclubs, and overcoming conflicts between housemates. Because they are centuries old, the trio remains out of touch with today’s society—until they make some new, younger friends.
