SYNOPSIS: Russian Red #7 is a seductive, breathtaking story that’s sexy and yet jagged, lush and yet spare – it draws you into the life of Luo-yi, a beautiful, self-destructive woman waiting for death and running from love, caught between her dark past in Beijing and her life as a model in Paris.
Through this fierce young artist, haunted by a hidden death sentence, we discover an ugly chapter in China’s recent history, in which the government inadvertently infected perhaps a million individuals with HIV.
The film blurs the line between the scars we hide and the tattoos we wear with pride.
AUDIENCE: The film targets 18-48 year olds worldwide with an emphasis in Europe and Asia. Viewers include those interested in French and Chinese culture, the multinational experience, and social justice.
It will be distributed worldwide with an emphasis in TV, DVD/VOD distribution, and limited theatrical release.
