Red, White & Brass (PG)

When Maka and Veni fail in getting tickets for the most important game of their lives, they decide to form a traditional Tongan marching band, just so they can go to the game. No one in their band of misfits knows anything about marching and they practice using plastic bottles and tin cans for instruments.

It is a complete shambles and if they can’t get their act together, they will embarrass their entire Tongan community in front of the world. However, what starts out as just a cynical scam to see a rugby game becomes a journey of self-discovery in which Maka and Veni will learn the importance of their Tongan culture.

‘From first-time filmmakers with a fabulous cast and a fresh funny feel-good story for the whole family, Red, White & Brass marches to its own big-hearted beat and it’s impossible to resist.’
Kate Rodger, Newshub

‘…Red, White & Brass is a story of family, friendship, and fearlessly representing what you believe in. It’s a heart-warming and uplifting watch that everyone will enjoy…’
Isaac Chen, NZ Herald
