As official online partner of The Jameson Dublin International Film Festival, we're delighted to announce their biggest, most illustrious ever guest for the 10th anniversary of the festival.
One of the finest actors of this, or any other generation, Al Pacino will premiere his new documentary, Wilde Salome, a "fascinating documentary which delves into the world of one of Ireland’s greatest writers, Oscar Wilde." Festival director Grainne Humphreys commented on the announcement "as a cinemagoer, I have long admired the ambition and range of Al Pacino's film career, which has created such an indelible legacy on world cinema. A provocateur, an innovator and a consummate artist who has created some of the most iconic characters in movie history, he is also a film director driven by his personal passions. The festival is honoured to present the Irish premiere of Wilde Salome - a new film by one of the world's greatest screen actors."
The documentary also stars wonderful young actress Jessica Chastain, and features Pacino and the rising star as they put on a theatre production of Salome. We can look forward to an "unprecedented behind the scenes" of the staging of one of Wilde's most famous works. The Festival runs from 16th-26th February 2012.
