Red on the Green (2015)

Written and Directed by Adam Harvey

A wronged lawn bowls champion returns to his club to claim back his rightful trophy.

A year after he was cheated out of the club championship and left for dead, a lawn bowls player seeks justice against the evil committee and his former colleagues who looked the other way.

"Made for Tropfest NZ, this was a finalist in the 2015 competition. I wanted to do a traditional western, with the old gunslinger returning to town for revenge, but it turned into this. The bowls club was a great setting to explore old resentments, and we were lucky to use the Ohaupo Bowls Club and its members before it sadly had to close."
