Dick Dale has been the king of Adelaide’s trash film scene for over 20 years. Now, armed with zero budget, and a cast recruited from assorted punk bands, Dick is about to make his first feature film Ribspreader, the story of a one-time pin-up boy for tobacco advertising, on a quest to kill smokers and make a jacket from their lungs. It will be a hilarious lo-fi odyssey that will either make or break his career. From directors Matthew Bate (Shut Up, Little Man!) and Liam Somerville comes this riotous six-part love letter to trash.
