Film Description – Green Ribbons is a 10-15 minute short film about single mother, Molly Coleman, who lives in fear of leaving her home after her son commits suicide. The story picks up when Molly receives a phone call from her sister, Kate, inviting her out to dinner for her birthday. Kate hasn’t seen her sister since the incident and begs her to come; it’ll only be for a couple of hours. Now Molly must decide whether she can take the risk of leaving her house.
Green Ribbons explores themes of psychological trauma, PTSD, depression, self-blame, and recovery. The film is composed in a way that the viewer will not realize Wyatt it dead until Molly does at the end of the film. This is how we can properly convey the weight of her trauma and the experiences someone might feel when living with PTSD.
Molly (40s/50s,Female) – A single mother who lives in fear of leaving her house after discovering her son’s suicide.
