Premiere screening event for NZ feature film VERMILION, an intimate, character-driven drama written and directed by Dorthe Scheffmann and starring Jennifer Ward-Lealand

VERMILION is a stunningly beautiful meditation on life, death and the strength of family and friends in a summer of crisis. Effortlessly multi-cultural and set in the lush domesticity of middle-class suburbia, VERMILION celebrates love and generosity in a richly female-centred household.

Celebrity composer Darcy (Jennifer Ward-Lealand) sees colours when she plays musical notes - synaesthesia. When she notices her vision is disrupted by the colour vermilion, she knows she needs help. While planning the wedding of her daughter Zoe (Emily Campbell), surrounded by her loving friends Sarah (Theresa Healey) and Sila (Goretti Chadwick), she secretly makes her own plans.
