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>

A Joyous Celebration of World Diversity circa Expo '86!
13 August 2001 | by jake jSee all my reviews

Bob Rogers greatest triumph! David Spear's beautiful score! This short film made for the Canadian Pacific Pavillion at Vancouver's underrated Expo 86 extols all the virtues of good filmmaking. A succinct allegory with gorgeous set design, rollicking special effects and infectious good cheer. Worth seeking out as one of the best examples of big budget short film production. Needless to say, a 10 out of 10. And naturally, it lost to the vastly inferior talk-fest "Molly's Pilgrim" at the 1986 Academy Awards.
