Yellow Veil Pictures released a brand new poster ahead of tonight’s world premiere of their latest film, BLOOD ON HER NAME. NY/LA-based arthouse genre sales company Yellow Veil Pictures recently acquired the world sales rights for the neo-noir, the debut feature from Matthew Pope.
The film follows a single mother’s panicked decision to cover up an accidental killing, which spirals out of control when her conscience demands she return the dead man’s body to his family. The dead body lies at her feet, its blood still draining onto the floor. It was an accident, borne of self defense, but its discovery could have devastating consequences for local garage owner Leigh Tiller (Bethany Anne Lind) and her son. In a panic, Leigh decides to conceal the crime, cleaning the bloody scene and scrambling to dispose of the body.
But can she actually disappear a man from the earth— from his family— leaving them forever wondering? As Leigh is torn between her primal instincts and tortured conscience she struggles to keep her sins hidden from her estranged father– a cop with a long history of moral compromise (Will Patton)– and from the keen-eyed girlfriend of the deceased (Elisabeth Rohm). BLOOD ON HER NAME is a character-driven thriller that explores questions of guilt, moral identity, and the irrevocability of choices in the direst circumstances.
BLOOD ON HER NAME stars Bethany Anne Lind (“Ozark”), Will Patton (Remember The Titans, Armageddon) and Elisabeth Röhm (Joy, American Hustle). The film was written and produced by Don Thompson and Matthew Pope for Rising Creek.
The film will World Premiere July 17th at the Fantasia International Film Festival, just ahead of the Frontiéres Co-Production Market.
