In honor of the release of ON THE ROAD, we’re thrilled to welcome Walter Salles in person at IFC Center to present a sneak preview of his new film on 12/14! In addition IFC Center will be showing his hand picked selection of road films that influenced him as well as selections from his own work. Featured films include Wim Wenders’ ALICE IN THE CITIES, Edgar Ulmer’s DETOUR, Abass Kiarostami’s TEN and screenings of Salles’s own CENTRAL STATION, THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES.

“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
