For immediate release:

Templeton Rye Feature Length Documentary Premieres December 4th

(Des Moines, IA) – Greetings from Modern American Cinema! We are proud to announce that on the eve of the anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition, we will have the world premiere of Kristian Day's Capone's Whiskey: The Story of Templeton Rye on December 4th, 2011 at the Fleur Cinema in Des Moines at 7PM.

The film chronicles the history of the infamous whiskey cookers of Carroll county from their outlaw days of Prohibition to the legalized and much sought after liquor.

"It's about the history of the whiskey," says Director Kristian Day. "We have spent almost an entire year compiling research and interview subjects from all over the state. Historians from Dubuque to Sioux City who are experts in both the Prohibition era and Al Capone's presence in Iowa have been involved in the production process since the beginning. I am very excited to finally share the rich history of Templeton Rye with the rest of the world."

This movie is the third movie in Day's MADE IN IOWA documentary series, which has previously included Brent Houzenga: Hybrid Pioneer (available on DVD) and Templeton Rye: Iowa's Good Stuff (30 minute short), which aired along side the Ken Burns' series Prohibition on Iowa Public Television this past October. The ongoing series tells the stories of the innovative people, places and ideas that have influenced Iowa’s culture.
