Road Movies: Directed and Selected by Walter Salles

Friday, December 14 - Thursday, December 20, 2012

In honor of the release of ON THE ROAD, we’re thrilled to welcome Walter Salles in person to present a sneak preview of his new film, plus a selection of road films he’s directed and chosen.

“Road movies directly challenge [the] culture of conformity. They are about experiencing, above all. They are about the journey. They are about what can be learned from the other, from those who are different. In a world that increasingly challenges these ideals, the importance of road movies as a form of resistance can’t be dismissed… road movies are as necessary as ever to tell us who we are, where we come from and where we’re heading.” – Walter Salles
