Ruin - Screenplay by Matthew & Ryan Firpo - Writing a Movie - Review

February 25, 2019

Set in post-war Germany, ‘Ruin’ led The 21st Rewrite to discuss the nature of hatred and redemption, the power of weaponized technology to cause mass suffering, Kurt Vonnegut’s testimony from that time, how the generations of the future will perceive the Holocaust in the absence of living memory, and the responsibilities of the screenwriter when dealing with the truth and fiction of these topics. Selected as the most-liked unproduced screenplay of 2017 by the Black List, ‘Ruin’ is the inspiration for another fascinating conversation.
