THR – Al Pacino’s films Salome and Wilde Salome based on Oscar Wilde’s play, are to be screened back-to-back and followed with a Q&A with the Oscar-winning actor and filmmaker.
The two movies will make their U.K. bows as part of a special event at the British Film Institute Southbank complex and will be presented together September 21. The Pacino Q&A will be broadcast live via satellite to cinemas across the U.K. and Ireland and the event will be hosted by Stephen Fry.
Salome is a filmed version of the play while Wilde Salome is a documentary that captures the challenges Pacino faced in performing in the play while simultaneously directing the two features.
Wilde Salome follows Pacino’s journey to Europe to understand more about one of the literary geniuses of the 20th century, Oscar Wilde.
