IFC Midnight will release Rubikon, a science-fiction disaster film directed by Magdalena Lauritsch, that brings social commentary and an acute moral dilemma into heart-pounding realization.
The film stars Julia Franz Richter (Undine), George Blagden (Les Miserables), and Mark Ivanir (The Good Shepherd). IFC Midnight will release the film in theaters and on demand in 2022.
Disaster strikes on earth. In Rubikon, the crew of a space station, Hannah (Julia Franz Richter), Gavin (George Blagden) and Dimitri (Mark Ivanir) must decide whether they risk their lives to get back home during a global catastrophe and search for survivors or stay safe in the sophisticated station’s algae symbiosis system, which makes them fully self-reliant. Rubikon questions whether we have the right to seal ourselves off in safety and ignorance from the ongoing problems of the world, as three people with three very different worldviews collide in this pressure-cooker environment millions of miles away.
