A Phoenix will rise at the Miami International Film Festival this March, where Dark Blood — the final film starring fallen actor River Phoenix — will make its North American premiere. The movie had its debut screening at the Netherlands Film Festival in September 2012.

Dark Blood stars Phoenix as Boy, a young widower living in the desert who takes a couple (Jonathan Pryce and Judy Davis) prisoner after their car breaks down. Phoenix was still shooting the film when he died in the wee hours of October 31, 1993 after ingesting a lethal combination of heroin and cocaine at Los Angeles’s Viper Room. »
