Portal to 'Red White and Blue'

user
The internationally acclaimed and festival winning Red White and Blue (2010) isn't the patriotic film that you would expect from such a title...No, it's a story peppered with symbolism about deprivation, love, passion and gore. Red, White and Blue is a heart-palpitating thought-provoking thriller story about nymph-ess Erica and 'three lives bound together by blood'.  I had the fortunate opportunity to meet with producer Bob Portal to speak about his film Red White and Blue as well...
