We worked with Bright Cold Day Films to look after their self-distributed UK theatrical release of British psychological thriller Containment, starring Louise Brealey, Lee Ross, Sheila Reid and Andrew Leung.
Mark, a failed artist estranged from his wife and son, wakes one morning to discover that the doors and windows of his apartment have been sealed shut. He assumes it’s a sick joke until he sees an army of ‘Hazmats’ – mysterious figures in protective suits – patrolling the grounds and attacking his fellow residents. When a neighbour smashes through their adjoining wall, Mark joins forces with his new- found ally and others from within the block. Together, they must work to defend themselves from the sinister Hazmats. But they soon discover that the greatest danger is sealed inside with them…
