“All art is at once surface and symbol.
Those who go beneath the surface do so at their peril.” - Oscar Wilde
WILDE SALOME is an experimental documentary that journeys into the mind of a film icon, and his fascination for a piece of literature that transcends time, and opens the door to a rising star. WILDE SALOME is a story of discovery, passion and above all a story of obsession.
Referred to by actor/director Al Pacino as his most personal project ever, the unconventional feature documentary Wilde Salome invites audiences into Pacino’s private world, as he explores the complexities of Oscar Wilde’s acclaimed play Salome, Wilde himself and the birth of a rising star, in actress Jessica Chastain.
The film offers an unprecedented behind the scenes look at Pacino’s odyssey. Pacino's raw exploration in Wilde Salome is one of obsession, determination, commitment and above all, passion. Wilde Salome is unlike any other documentary, a profound vision that explores religion, literature, politics, violence and sexuality from one of the world's greatest artists—writer, Oscar Wilde.
Followed by broadcast Q&A with Stephen Fry
