Zombie – The Resurrection of Tim Zom
Zombie: The Resurrection of Tim Zom (original title)
A film by Billy Pols
Tim Zom, born and raised in the South of Rotterdam, steps out of a dark past and stands at the point of becoming an international professional skateboarder. His career takes him from the cold Dutch reality into the American Dream, with big companies like Nike & Monster Energy supporting him. ZOMBIE is a film about a unique and surprising character who, through talent and personality and against all odds, grew out to become a hero.
Billy Pols grew up in a South African desolated farm making slasher films with his siblings. After moving to the Netherlands, he became a sponsored amateur skateboarder but kept flirting with filmmaking. Billy’s documentary career started with PLANK, a multiple award-winning film about Nassim Guammaz, a Moroccan skateboarder. Having specialized in visual communication, Billy’s work is often regarded as photographic with a poetic human touch.
