Flatpack Festival: Threads

120 mins | rated 18

Our first physical festival following lockdown featured a comedy strand and various other feelgood programming. Now we figure you're ready for something a bit more... bracing.

Director Mick Jackson and writer Barry Hines (Kes) were commissioned by the BBC to write a film about the potential impact on the UK of a nuclear strike. By setting the action in Sheffield and using what were then relatively unknown actors, they plunge us from a small-scale domestic drama into a neorealist horror film as the bomb drops and society swiftly begins to unravel. The result is unapologetically designed as a warning, and many of the 1000+ Sheffield extras we see navigating the apocalypse were CND members. Threads has lost none of its capacity to shock, and remains all too relevant today.
