is a political action-thriller based on a true story that happened to writer/director and former TV-war-correspondent Ziri Rideaux.
A clandestine research landed her in between the frontlines of the American and the South African Secret Service – and pointed her straight towards their many covert operations and money laundering schemes in the Third World – one of the First World’s best kept secret.
In BACKGAMMON, Rideaux draws on her experience of capturing realism to tell a provocative what if story. What if the Earth was really set up explode in one month from now? By mixing equal parts satire, suspense and science fiction, the film tells a seductive and compelling story about ordinary people who must learn to play the ultimate game of survival in a world beyond law and privilege.
