It doesn't get 3 stars...because, it's a work-in-progress...

Mr Cordeiro want this to become a feature...and, on the strength of this 'showreel' - so do we!

The(ir) Blurb...

Provincetown, a small harbor village at the very tip of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, was already a home to the LGBT community for a few decades when AIDS devastated its population in the mid-1980s. Ribbons is a short film that explores an episode in the life of a second generation Portuguese boy when his mother brings him to a community memorial service by the sea. The boy experiences firsthand the loss incurred by the epidemic, but also his community’s inspirational response to it; an event that as an adult helps him understand the power of forming a bond with a kindred tribe.
