Here is the Tribeca announcement description of its Scarface screening:
Scarface – 35th Anniversary, Sponsored by Kia
Scarface, Brian De Palma’s blazing modernization of Howard Hawks’ 1932 classic, is an electrifying consideration of the humanizing motives of evil men. It went on to receive three Golden Globe nominations and became one of the most referenced and revered films in pop culture. Al Pacino delivers his riskiest performance in a career-defining role, garnering a cult following for the film. Revisit the gangland masterpiece thirty-five years later, a rich, harrowing, eminently quotable ride to excess and self-destruction that laid the groundwork for all the anti-hero stories to come. A Universal Pictures release.
After the Screening: a conversation with director Brian De Palma and actors Al Pacino and Michelle Pfeiffer.
DATE: Thursday, April 19th
