RED, a dark thriller set in the underground world of illegal organ smuggling, is the directorial debut for London-based Serb actor Branko Tomovic (24: Live Another Day, Fury, Entity, The Bourne Ultimatum).
Niklas, a surgeon who lives a life of solitude and is tormented by self hatred, performs regular illegal surgeries for the ‘red market’. He works with Mia, a prostitute who lures and drugs her clients for Niklas to harvest. Fearing for what the job is doing to his mind, Niklas is looking for a way out of this dark world. But he owes his life to violent crime boss Ed, who would rather kill him than let him go.
The film stars Dervla Kirwan (Ondine, Ballykissangel, The Silence, Doctor Who), Francesca Fowler (Doctor Who, Rome, Closure) and Branko Tomovic (24: Live Another Day, Fury, Entity, The Bourne Ultimatum).
Produced by House Kino and Kaissar Film, the film will premiere late summer on the international festival circuit.
