Red is a driven young runaway who returns to her hometown to track down her wayward father. Inhabiting the fringes of Modesto, California in the toxic haze of the 1980’s, Warm Blood is a politically subversive, searing collage of sound, narrative, documentary and trash B movie meta narratives, hand stitched by filmmaker Rick Charnoski in his debut feature. (Rick Charnoski, USA, 2022, 86 min.)
