Al Pacino to visit Dublin for the premiere of Wilde Salome

The Oscar winning screen legend will attend the 10th Jameson Dublin International Film Festival

Al Pacino has been confirmed to attend the 10th Jameson Dublin International Film Festival, which takes place from the 16th-26th February 2012. The veteran Hollywood actor-turned-director will present the Irish premiere of his latest project and personal obsession ‘Wilde Salome’. A documentary which delves into the world of Oscar Wilde, it is an arresting onscreen celebration of Dublin’s storytelling heritage.

Speaking of Pacino’s attendance, festival director Gráinne Humphreys said “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.”
