The World Cup is in town, your team is playing and you’re unable to get a ticket to see the big game. What would you do? Enter Maka; a Tongan superfan, who will do whatever it takes to get tickets to the Tonga vs France Rugby World Cup game – even if it means promising to deliver an imaginary brass band for the pre-match entertainment. RED, WHITE & BRASS, directed by Damon Fepulea and written by Halaifonua Finau and Fepulea, is a feel-good comedy based on an incredible true story of Finau’s family. Executive produced by TaikaWaititi, the narrative film delivers with laugh-out-loud humor that’s fit for the entire family.
