Salomé (recorded play): At a birthday feast for King Herod (Al Pacino), his stepdaughter, Princess Salomé (Jessica Chastain), discovers the imprisoned John the Baptist and is immediately infatuated with him. Rebuffed by the prisoner, Salomé entices her lecherous stepfather with the promise of completing the erotic Dance of the Seven Veils, if he will grant her one wish. He agrees to any wish in order to have his desire sated. Following the dance, Salomé demands the head of John the Baptist. Herod offers her anything but that, but she refuses to change her demand...
Wilde Salomé (documentary): Director Al Pacino takes us on a personal journey as he unravels and reinterprets Oscar Wilde's once banned controversial work Salomé, a scintillating tale of lust, greed and one woman's scorn. Through a mix of documentary, fiction and improvisation, we get a rare insight into the mind of one our greatest and most unique actors.
Following the screening of Salomé and Wilde Salomé there will be a live satellite Q&A with Al Pacino hosted by Stephen Fry at the BFI.
