George Sluizer completes DARK BLOOD

August 1, 2012


DARK BLOOD, the movie River Phoenix was working on at the time of his death in 1993 is being completed almost 20 years after it was abandoned.

The "unfinished" film will be ready by September 2012. It is selected for the Golden Calf Competition at the Netherlands Film Festival 2012 in Utrecht.

The film will have its premiere with a special guest audience on September 27, 2012 during the Netherlands Film Festival. During the Festival a retrospective of George Sluizer's oeuvre will be screened. At the same time a book about the 80 year old director's film life will be published.

Sluizer Films financed and produced the editing and post-production of DARK BLOOD, supported by the Netherlands Film Fund and donations via Cinecrowd funding.

DARK BLOOD stars River Phoenix, Judy Davis, Jonathan Pryce and Karen Black.

The film tells the story of Boy, a young widower living on a nuclear testing site in the desert. Boy is waiting for the end of the world and carves Katchina dolls that supposedly contain magical powers.

Boy's solitude is interrupted when a Hollywood jet-set couple who are travelling across the desert become stranded after their car breaks down. The couple are rescued by Boy, who then holds them prisoner because of his desire for the woman and his ambition to create a better world with her.
