Red, White & Brass Trailer Marches Out

Sneak a peak into the highly anticipated feature Red, White, and Brass, co-edited by DEGANZ board member Ben Powdrell.

The feel-good comedy is based on a true story and celebrates Tongan people’s passion and enthusiasm for their sports teams. When superfan Maka is desperate to score tickets to the 2011 Tonga vs France Rugby World Cup, he promises to lead a brass band as the pre-game entertainment. But with the game only four weeks away and no band in sight, Maka and his community must band together to support and show up for their team and themselves.

Featuring a stellar cast of Tongan talent, the film radiates good vibes with infectious māfana energy.

The film was shot in Te Whanganui-a-Tara, Wellington, and will hit Aotearoa cinemas on Thursday 23 March before its international release.
