„The ghost of an actress visits the theater in which she once played. Frank, a returned veteran, is on the run for a crime that is both sinister and absurd. An archivist discovers a mysterious script hunted by three masked men. The surreal netherworld in which these three characters never quite meet is The Earlville Opera House, where once upon a time a musical was staged, „Little Athens on the Erie Canal.“ We eternally return to an elaborate architecture from which there is no hope of escape.
We made this film in response to our own questions about censorship. We have found that at times, artists are their own worst censors. Still we fight to express ourselves and encourage other artists in a world that is often not hospitable to their creativity.
HOLY BLOOD will be screened in cinemas and festivals across the US and internationally.
