The world has great beauty, but it is also a dangerous place! One day may be your last – if a friend isn’t there to rescue you. Red makes a journey from south to north, from warm to cold, from light to darkness. On Christmas Eve he falls down in the snow, very far away from home. Then there is Silver! After a good meal they fly away to a warm place with new problems. – The film is dedicated to Mother Earth and all her creatures with wings.

14. July 2018 – The HOPE-FIRST, 1st UNIVERSAL SHORT FILM FESTIVAL (Spain) selected the fifteen most viewed short films of the 2017 online festival. They were unified into a single piece, and Red & Silver was one of them! They had a premiere on July 14, 2018, coinciding with the beginning of the revolution in France that proclaimed the rights of man. They were defending the principles of freedom, equality, and fraternity against its enemies of ignorance, fanaticism, and tyranny. Any collective, association, or organization around the world who wanted to collaborate that day, were able to broadcast this film online, or download it from the internet to process it in DCP, and project it in cinemas on that day.
