April 5 @ 7:30 pm
Wanna see the next Werner Herzog film before anyone else does? The New York Film Critics Series returns to The Frida Cinema on Wednesday, April 5th with an advance screening of SALT AND FIRE!
Salt and Fire is an internationally co-produced thriller film directed by Werner Herzog, which had its premiere at the Shanghai International Film Festival, before being selected to be screened in the Special Presentations section at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival. This dramatic film concerns two ecologists (played by Veronica Ferres and Gael Garcia Bernal) who are sent to South America as part of a U.N. investigation into an ecological disaster. They are quickly kidnapped by the villainous CEO (played by Michael Shannon) of a large company held responsible for the catastrophe. But when a massive volcano nearby begins to show signs of erupting, the unlikely trio must work together to avoid a likely demise. Featuring On-Screen Talk Back with Michael Shannon.
Presented by the NY Film Critics Series.
This special screening of Salt and Fire will include an exclusive recorded on-screen talk-back conversation after the film with two-time Oscar nominee Michael Shannon.
