Not long after we brought you the news that acclaimed Canadian indie film Rhymes for Young Ghouls will soon be showing in theaters in the United States, another movie about the Indigenous experience from the recent crop of notables has been picked up by a distributor. Via a press release, Kino Lorber announced it has acquired North American rights to Winter in the Blood. The film stars Native actors Chaske Spencer, Julia Jones, Gary Farmer, Michael Spears, Lily Gladstone and Saginaw Grant, and is based on a novel by Blackfeet/Gros Ventre author James Welch.
There aren't too many true Native stories out there," Spencer told ICTMN. "We’re not really represented,. ... What I like about Winter in the Blood is, it tells the story of just this guy. A lot of people around the world think we still live in teepees. We know who we are, but the outside world doesn’t." Two days after that interview was published, the film won the Grand Prize at the Montreal First Peoples Festival.
Below is the full text of the press release from Kino Lorber (follow the Winter in the Blood Facebook page for the latest news):
NEW YORK, NY (JULY 29, 2014) – Kino Lorber announced today that the company is acquiring North American rights to WINTER IN THE BLOOD, from directors Alex Smith and Andrew Smith (THE SLAUGHTER RULE). The film, which is based on the landmark novel by James Welch, features Chaske Spencer (TWILIGHT SAGA), David Morse (THE HURT LOCKER, WORLD WAR Z), and Julia Jones (TWILIGHT SAGA). The film had its World Premiere in Narrative Competition at the Los Angeles Film Festival and has won several awards and played at over thirty film festivals. WINTER IN THE BLOOD will open theatrically at IFC Center, New York on August 20th with filmmakers and key cast members in attendance. Los Angeles screenings and additional markets will follow in September.
WINTER IN THE BLOOD follows Virgil First Raise (Chaske Spencer) who wakes in a ditch on the Northern plains of Montana, hungover and badly beaten. He returns to his ranch on the reservation, only to find that his wife, Agnes, (Julia Jones) has left him. Worse, she's taken his beloved rifle. Virgil sets out to town find her, beginning a hi-line odyssey of inebriated and possibly imagined intrigues in town with the mysterious 'Airplane Man,' (David Morse) a beautiful barmaid (Dana Wheeler-Nicholson), and two dangerous Men in Suits. Are they real? Or spirits tricking him from his true path? Virgil's quest brings him face-to-face with childhood memories of his beloved, lost brother, Mose.
WINTER IN THE BLOOD authentically portrays the lost world of the “True West” with its sweeping shots of untouched prairie, remote towns, and mountain terrain. The film unfolds like a poem, capturing the novel’s dreamscape of memory, trauma, and motion with breathtaking cinematography and design.
“The novel Winter in the Blood is a true classic – unique, universal, timeless, and uncompromising,” said co-director Alex Smith, “It touches people in a profound, life-changing way because it is a story of survival and recovery. Our desire has always been to expose this unflinching, hilarious, ferocious story to a worldwide audience in the collective dream-house of cinema.”
