RED IS THE COLOR OF
LOS ANGELES PREMIERE AT THE LA FEMME FILM FESTIVAL
OCTOBER 13th, 2007
September 27, 2007, Beverly Hills, CA— Bear Island Films is proud to announce the Los Angeles premiere of feature film RED IS THE COLOR OF at the 3rd annual LA Femme Film Festival. The west coast premiere will take place at the Fine Arts Theater in Beverly Hills Saturday October 13, 2007 at 6pm with a RED themed cocktail reception proceeding at the FESTIVAL LOUNGE with cast and crew.
RED IS THE COLOR OF is a seductive romance/drama written and directed by Anne Norda. The tense marriage between two painters is disrupted when the husband’s provocative nude model ignites his wife’s sexual and spiritual awakening. In a three-way game of subtle seduction, each confronts unfulfilled desires and festering frustrations that threaten to destroy the illusions of their lives.
Mary Shaw’s (Irina Björklund) signature blood paintings have made her a celebrity in the art world. Meanwhile, her husband, David Stellar (Peter Franzén), can't get a single gallery to show his realistic nudes - they're just not "now" enough. But he refuses to change his style. Could it have anything to do with Julie Belle (Eliza Pryor Nagel), the sexy blue-eyed blonde he’s painting?
Curious about the new woman in David’s world, Mary takes Julie to see her artwork and they soon become fast friends. Fascinated by Julie’s free spirit and outrageous honesty, Mary finds in their relationship a deep level of intimacy, one that is seriously lacking in her marriage. Julie’s ambiguous sexuality and probing
questions lead Mary to reassess her carefully constructed existence. David fights to keep his marriage intact and to resist the temptations of Julie. As she emotionally intertwines with the couple, Julie’s façade of detachment crumbles and she wreaks havoc on all their lives. Out of this emotional chaos, in danger of losing everything that meant anything to her, Mary breaks through her past and discovers what it means to be truly free. RED IS THE COLOR OF stars famed Finnish actress Irina Björklund and actor Peter Franzén, Eliza Pryor Nagel, Cary DiPietro, Terry Tocantins, Lorenzo Caccialanza, and Marcello Robinson.
***Most of the cast will be available the night of the screening for press interviews***
This is Anne Norda’s first film to appear at the LA Femme Film Festival. The 2007 festival is between October 11th-14th, and its mission is to support and nurture the artistic entertainment productions of women for the benefit of an international and domestic audience.
