Following in the long tradition of Psychological Post-Apocalyptic movies such as The Mist, District Nine, The Road and Cloverfield comes RIBBONS.
How would you deal if the end of the world began during your dinner party?
RIBBONS is a story of how 5 houseguests, locked in a basement make sense of what appears to be their impending doom. But is their biggest threat really from what is outside?
RIBBONS is directed by BAFTA Award winning filmmakers Gregor Barclay and Colin Bell and stars Kim Allan (Outlaw King), Robert Jack (In Plain Sight), Kirstin McLean (Taggart) and Kirsty Strain (Outlander, Anna and the Apocalypse).
RIBBONS is produced by Grant McPhee of Tartan Features, Paul Thomas of xFilm and Dave Gillies of Team Candiru.
Ribbons tells the story of a dinner party gone awry; first through the antagonistic actions of the host, and latterly through the intervention of a nuclear bomb, which detonates in the city beyond and necessitates the end of dinner and the guests’ swift departure downstairs to the host’s panic room / fallout shelter. Our host is revealed to be what’s known as a doomsday-prepper -his subterranean bunker is equipped with everything that he and his wife need to survive the nuclear winter. Everything has gone according to his fastidious emergency plans – everything except the number of people now sharing the bunker with him. Perhaps there are ways he can thin the herd? It’s for the good of humanity, of course…
