The Fast and the Furious: AirTalk’s FilmWeek Screening

The Fast and the Furious: AirTalk’s FilmWeek Screening

Summertime is blockbuster season, and FilmWeek is coming to The Frida to bring you one of the biggest hits of the early 2000s, The Fast and The Furious! Stick around after the film as host Larry Mantle joins us in person to welcome special guests to discuss its lasting impact, how some of the thrilling race scenes were made, and more!

A high-octane action film that takes place in the underground world of illegal street racing in Los Angeles, The Fast and the Furious follows Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker), an undercover cop who has infiltrated a gang of racers suspected of hijacking trucks to steal valuable electronics. As Brian gets deeper into the world of fast cars and high stakes, he must balance his duty as a cop with his growing affinity for the gang's charismatic leader, Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel), and Dominic's sister, Mia (Jordana Brewster). A box office success that became a cultural phenomenon, the original Fast film's blend of thrilling action sequences, stylish direction, and cast chemistry set the stage for one of the most successful franchises in film history.

Make sure to stick around after the screening as we welcome legendary broadcaster and fellow cinephile Larry Mantle to our stage!
