Storyline

Three kingdoms, floating separately in space, can each see the other nearby kingdoms but have no means to communicate or visit. Each has developed a fanatical obsession for a specific color for clothing, architecture, and even plant life: one blue, one red, one golden. A forbidden inter-kingdom romance and a war of conquest ensues when a means of travel between the kingdoms is abruptly found. Written by Dave Heston <heston@iName.com>

OSCAR NOMINEE screened at Canada Pacific Pavilion of Expo 86
10 February 2000 | by (atlanta, ga) – See all my reviews

This is one of the great short films of all time!!! I thrilled to it with members of the USSR pavilion as a visiting US journalist and its obvious yet delightful symbols of colorus representing the world powers was simplistic-undeniably- and brilliantly presented- absolutely. A gorgeous score, handsome cast and stunning production collided in one of the great world's fair cinematic experiences of all time.
