Friday, October 20 - Saturday, November 4, 2023

Due to an unforeseen conflict, critic Gretchen Felker-Martin is no longer able to introduce the October 25 screening as originally planned. We apologize for the change.

An American oil company located in a South American town is looking for drivers to haul nitroglycerine over the rugged terrain. Four expatriated men who have nothing to lose take on the job, for which they’ll each be given $10,000 and the reward of legal citizenship if they live.

Screening as part of our retrospective William Friedkin: Fate and Faith.

See more and save! Get a Holy Trinity Pack ($30 for IFC Center members and $45 for non-members). Ticket packs are good for any shows in the retrospective.
