Last Modified: 5-3-2023 8:21

Shot in Te Whanganui-a-Tara, Wellington, the brand new feature film Red, White & Brass is inspired by a true story about a group of Tongans forming a brass band to get free tickets for the 2011 Rugby World Cup to see Tonga play France. The band music in the film was performed by Wellington Brass.

Says co-writer and director Damon Fepulea’i. “There is nothing like the sound of a brass band to make you feel a group of people come together for a common goal”.

The premiere will be at Event Cinema Kinross Street. Tickets cost $35 and are available from Band members and Blenheim South Rotary members, or phone 027 220 1711 or email [email protected]
