Directed by William Friedkin | 1977

With Roy Scheider, Bruno Cremer, Francisco Rabal, Amidou, Ramon Bieri

Friedkin’s dream project was this loose take on Clouzot’s suspense classic The Wages of Fear, in which he fleshes out the characters’ backstories and ups the grittiness factor. Four lost souls are brought together to transport a truckload of explosive nitroglycerin across a foreboding South American jungle—and one seriously rickety rope bridge—in this palm-sweatingly tense thriller. Tangerine Dream’s pulse-pounding electronic score heightens the quivering, existential dread.

 
Q&A 
 

with William Friedkin

Screening will be followed by a Q&A with Academy Award-winning director William Friedkin, moderated by critic Scott Foundas. The Q&A will be followed by a book signing of Friedkin's new memoir, The Friedkin Connection available from HarperCollins on April 16.
