Filmmaker Karina Vidal Debuts 'Reds & Blues'
By Katherine Owen
“Is it bad to fuel fantasies of you past death?" a young woman named Daphne asks. "Is it strange to be loyal, emotionally, to the nonexistent?” It's a weighty moment in Karina Vidal's short film, "Reds & Blues,"
Shot in Vidal’s Brooklyn apartment, the film was funded through Indiegogo and the support of additional private investors. The volunteer crew includes SVA undergraduates and alumni, and the cast is made up of talented actors from several New York conservatories.
Vidal is currently working on a script that digs into prostitution during the 1960s. “The project has its own goals: the pro-feminist side of me wants to achieve," she says.
A screening and Q&A of Reds & Blues will take place Sunday, Oct. 27, at the Metropolitan Community Church of New York at 12:30 p.m.
