The Prairie Lights Film Festival is very excited to announce that Lincoln native Sarah Knight’s first feature length film, VINO VERITAS, is an official selection of the festival! VINO VERITAS has been an official selection of the Wine Country Film Festival, Oaxaca Film Fest, La Femme International Film Festival, and Louisville’s International Festival of Film!
The synopsis is as follows:
Some people need the truth to live. Others not so much. On Halloween night, the lives of two suburban couples unravel forever under the influence of a Peruvian wine brewed from the toxic skin of blue dart tree frogs. This tribal elixir effectively reduces all inhibitions to nothing, and soon friendships and relationships are revealed to be not quite what they seemed. By turns brutally funny, wickedly honest, and unashamedly human, the film explodes personal and cultural taboos and lays bare the horror and beauty beneath our carefully composed public personas. Imagine a bobsled ride down Mt. Everest…on a moonless night…during a blizzard. That is the essence of “Vino Veritas.” Just hang on, and hope for the best.
VINO VERITAS stars Carrie Preston (The Good Wife, True Blood, Person of Interest), Bernard White, Heather Raffo, and Brian Hutchison and was shot on location in Lincoln, Nebraska.
