"Blood Into Wine" will screen three times at Spook Hall in Jerome, Arizona on August 8, with the first two screenings (11:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.) followed by a question-and-answer session with the film's star and area vintner Maynard James Keenan. The final screening (6:00 p.m.) will be free to Jerome residents with a small donation to a local non-profit charity of their choice.
"Blood Into Wine", the award-winning documentary that Filmcritic.com dubbed a "rock 'n' roll version of 'Sideways'" and the Village Voice said was one of the "most intriguing documentaries we've seen in a while," will be loaded with bonus features when it arrives in stores on Sept. 7.
The DVD extras include extended interviews with TOOL/A PERFECT CIRCLE/PUSCIFER front man Maynard James Keenan and vineyard partner Eric Glomski, PUSCIFER concert footage and deleted scenes featuring Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim ("Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!" ).
"Blood Into Wine" focuses on Keenan and Glomski's struggle to create a high-quality wine region in the harsh terrain of Northern Arizona while facing a number of obstacles including the state legislature, the wine establishment and curious wildlife. The film co-stars Milla Jovovich, Patton Oswalt, Bob Odenkirk, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim.
Produced and directed by Ryan Page and Christopher Pomerenke, the team behind the critically-acclaimed documentaries "Moog" and "The Heart Is A Drum Machine" as well as the upcoming feature film "Queens of Country" (starring Lizzy Caplan and Ron Livingston), "Blood Into Wine" has screened in over seventy-five cities since its Feb. 19 theatrical release and will continue to screen throughout the summer (dates below).
Keenan previously announced that a "Blood Into Wine" soundtrack will be released simultaneously via Puscifer Entertainment.
