Blood Into Wine, the documentary that shares the story of Maynard James Keenan (front man for Tool, Puscifer and A Perfect Circle) and vineyard partner Eric Glomski’s mission to bring notoriety and credibility to Northern Arizona’s burgeoning wine industry, has added two additional New York City screenings: May 28 at City Winery NYC and May 29 at Uniondocs in Williamsburg (Brooklyn).
The previously announced date at City Winery NYC is May 27 and is accompanied by a Q&A featuring guests from the film. The May 28 screening will feature an assortment of wines from Keenan's vineyards.
City Winery is the brainchild of Michael Dorf, founder of the downtown music mecca the Knitting Factory, and comprises a music club and operational winery in the heart of Soho, NY.
Blood Into Wine was co-directed by Ryan Page and Christopher Pomerenke, who are in production on the feature film Queens of Country (starring Lizzy Caplan and Ron Livingston) and are the team behind critically acclaimed documentaries Moog and The Heart Is a Drum Machine. FilmCritic.com describes Blood Into Wine as "a rock 'n roll version of Sideways,” the Los Angeles Times said “The frisson between his [Keenan] well-crafted personal mystique and the way the film presents him as a dedicated new winemaker learning his craft is intriguing” and the San Diego CityBeat added: "It’s a behind-the-curtain peek at a notoriously publicity-shy celebrity, but more than that, it’s a fascinating look at pioneers braving the Arizona elements to create drinkable art." Blood Into Wine, a truly independent film with no formal distribution, has screened in thirty-five U.S. cities to date with an additional forty-five cities being added over the next two months.
