The Montana-made movie “Winter in the Blood gets an in-state premiere at Missoula’s Roxy Theater on Saturday, July 20.

Based on author James Welch’s novel about a young man dealing with family and identity crises on the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation, the movie was shot along the Hi-Line in 2011. Brothers Alex and Andrew Smith co-directed the film.

“After our world premiere in Los Angeles, Alex and I felt it was very important to bring this iconic Montana story home to a Montana audience,” said Andrew Smith, who is an associate professor in the University of Montana’s School of Media Arts. “It was Montanans who helped us make this film possible in each stage of filmmaking, from raising money, location scouting and casting through shooting and post-production, and we’re very excited to start sharing it with them.”

Tickets for the Missoula showing go on sale Friday online at theroxytheater.org. Remaining tickets will be available at the theater box office on the day of the screening.

Cast members Chaske Spencer, Dana Wheeler-Nicholson and Lily Gladstone will attend the screening, along with members of the band Heartless Bastards, who provided much of the soundtrack music. The band will perform at the Top Hat after the screening.

The screenings coincide with the final weekend of the Montana Repertory Theatre’s Colony workshop. “Winter in the Blood” had its first public screenplay reading at a Colony session in 2008.
