As described on the official University of Pittsburgh website, in 1994:

“George A. Romero traveled to Valencia Community College in central Florida to make a short film about a swamp-dwelling bigfoot called Jacaranda Joe. Largely unknown and presumed lost, a copy of the film was discovered in the University of Pittsburgh Library System’s Romero archive.”

According to the tweet shared by Adam Hart below, the screening will be followed by a Q&A session with crew members Michael Sellers, George Rizkallah, and Elizabeth Tobin Kurtz.
