In Theatres & On VOD: OUR BLOOD IS WINE

Coming to theatres and to VOD tomorrow, Friday, March 16:
OUR BLOOD IS WINE

Director:
Emily Railsback

Premiere:
Berlin 2018

About:
An appreciation of the ancient winemaking traditions of the Republic of Georgia.

Curious about the origins of wine, filmmaker Emily Railsback and sommelier Jeremy Quinn travel to the former Soviet republic of Georgia, which has been producing the beverage for 8000 years. They visit traditional wine producers in various regions of the country, making the unusual decision to film the proceedings via iPhone, which unfortunately lends the project an uncinematic feel. While providing some occasionally intriguing history lessons, and some measure of ethnographic interest, such as the early segments exploring the ancient use of large qvevri clay urns for fermentation, the overall project feel scattered and a bit too dry to maintain general interest.
