When River Phoenix died in 1993 the filming of Dark Blood was abandoned, with everyone assuming it would never see the light of day. Now, director George Sluizer, who will attend the screening, has assembled the existing footage and created a final cut in which his voiceover narrates the missing scenes. It is an elegant solution to an impossible situation. In this tense thriller, jet set actors Buffy (Judy Davis) and Harry (Jonathan Pryce) break down in the desert near a former nuclear testing ground. They stumble across Boy (Phoenix), a young widower waiting for the end of the world who takes a dangerous shine to Buffy. A tantalising vision of what might have been, ravishingly shot by Ed Lachmann.

George Sluizer, the man who directed River Phoenix in his last ever film, discusses how he finally put Dark Blood together after 20 years. UK premiere.
