From the fertile mind of Christopher Coppola comes a thrilling blast of operatic vampire love. Fueled by a combination of gritty low-budget energy and gorgeous moments of deep meditation, Sacred Blood is unnerving, passionate cinema for people who like film served straight up, with a twist. The riveting story follows Natia, a circus sharpshooter from Georgia (the former Soviet republic), who flees to San Francisco after confronting a mysterious performer and his disturbing dog. As Natia wanders through the city, spending quality time in the Tenderloin, Chinatown, and North Beach, she encounters a series of colorful, sometimes dangerous characters and searches for her place in this new world. When she meets a young artist (Bailey Coppola, a dead-ringer for another member of the famous clan), Natia must make extreme decisions that will resonate for eternity. A soulful San Francisco serenade to creatures of the night, Sacred Blood is both moving and menacing at once.
