Private Screening of Dark Blood
Students International Academy of Film and Television in Antwerp were fortunate to have private screening of George Sluizer’s Dark Blood hosted by Harold Jalving at the school.
It was a very special evening— we screened the film in an unfinished part of our campus. It was a raw space for a powerful film.
Starring River Phoenix, Judy Davis and Jonathan Pryce, the film recordings came to an end in 1993 due to the sudden death of main star River Phoenix. Only in 2012 George Sluizer was able to complete the film with missing scenes. Sound design plays an important role in Dark Blood.
Sluizer is known for his unique signature, his “going to the edge” and “search for one’s limits”. “My strength as a filmmaker lies in my beliefs and convictions, and not in the ‘communis opinio’ of too many people….”
Harold Jalving is a sound designer from The Netherlands. Dark Blood, directed by George Sluizer-The Vanishing– can be marked as a highlight in Harold’s career. We are honored that he is an IAFT mentor.
