Indie sci-fi Containment is now available on We Are Colony, complete with a bundle of special features.
To celebrate, we’ve got an exclusive sneak peek at the extended documentary about the making of the film. The documentary includes interviews with director Neil Mcenery-West, writer David Lemon and cinematographer Arthur Mulhern, along with footage of the team preparing and shooting the movie.
Containment follows Mark, a failed artist estranged from his wife and son, who 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 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.
“The idea for Containment originated from my desire to tell a gripping story that was large in scope but achievable on a relatively small scale,” says Mcenery-West. “An independent disaster movie, and a film that was as experiential as possible.”
The film is available to rent and buy on the site – you can read our full review here. We Are Colony are also giving away postcards signed by the cast. Entries for the competition close at midnight tonight.
