Still image from the film On the Road
In anticipation of Walter Salles’ interpretation of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, the IU Cinema presents three road movies from his filmography: Foreign Land, Central Station, and The Motorcycle Diaries. The genre drove him to directing: “Road movies brought me to the cinema,” explains Salles. “I couldn’t understand why movies like Michelangelo Antonioni’s The Passenger or Wim Wenders’s Alice in the Citiesmoved me so deeply. Little by little, I realized that it had to do with the unique narrative form of the road movie, based in the unpredictable.”

These screenings are sponsored by Latin American and Caribbean Studies, Latino Studies Program, Department of Spanish and Portuguese, Department of Communication and Culture, and IU Cinema. Special thanks to James Canary and Darlene Sadlier.

Walter Salles is scheduled to be in attendance on November 14 and 15.
