Award winning Indie Filmmaker John Borowski's (H.H. Holmes: America’s First Serial Killer) fifth feature documentary film, Bloodlines: The Art and Life of Vincent Castiglia, will be released on November 13th, 2018. The film focuses on artist Castiglia’s life of abuse, addiction, and recovery while also exploring the reasons why the world renowned artist paints exclusively in human blood.
The reasons why Castiglia began painting in blood are explored in this emotional rollercoaster ride portrayed on film. Borowski stated, “This is a deeply personal film for Vincent and I am honored to have worked closely with him on the film. I feel many people will see this film as inspirational, even though it is a dark ride through pain and suffering. Vincent’s life journey, much like his art, reflects both the dark and ultimately the light that shines through the darkness.”
Margaret Cho, who commissioned Vincent to paint her portrait in her blood, is interviewed in the film as well as celebrities Gregg Allman, Damien Echols, Kerry King and Gary Holt of the heavy metal band Slayer, record executive Michael Alago, and numerous others including filming in the Switzerland studio and museum of legendary artist H.R. Giger, who designed the iconic creature for the Alien movies.
After a successful Kickstarter fundraising campaign, production of the film spanned from 2014 to 2018, filming on location in the United States: New York City, Los Angeles, Louisiana, Chicago, Oregon, and internationally: Singapore and Switzerland.
