Blossoms have announced a new film premiere and gig event.
Taking place at the Plaza Theatre in Stockport on 3rd May, it’ll air the band’s brand new Edwin Burdis-directed film, Ribbon Around The Bomb, before the band play through their record of the same name (out 29th April) in full.
Speaking about the film, Blossoms’ Tom Ogden says: “What a joy it was making this film with Edwin Burdis. It was also great to work with my cousin Daniel Rigby, a BAFTA award winning actor, who brilliantly plays ‘The Writer’ who is trying to put on his new play ‘Ribbon Around The Bomb’. Edwin’s unique style and vision really took the film to surreal corners, using editing techniques I’ve never come across before! The outcome is a quirky, dream-like film that we absolutely love.”
Edwin Burdis adds: “We created a script for this film so that we could rip it up…It was an absolute pleasure to collaborate with Blossoms and such diversely talented practitioners and performers on this project. The Stockport Plaza was a joy to work in and it very much became an unexpected central character of the piece. Whilst a lot of time and care went into crafting the script, the cast and crew had full permission to improvise, which really allowed creativity to flow.”
