 The Wages of Fear
“HEART-STOPPING! See it on the big screen if you possibly can.””
–Roger Ebert
New 35mm print of the classic thriller
In a squalid South American oil town, four desperate men sign on for a suicide mission to drive trucks loaded with nitroglycerin over a treacherous mountain route to a faraway oil fire. The result is one of the greatest thrillers ever committed to celluloid, a white-knuckle ride from France’s legendary master of suspense, Henri-Georges Clouzot, now in a gorgeous new 35mm print created from a complete HD digital restoration.

 Norwegian Wood
“A swoon of pleasure”
–The Guardian
“”In the realm of greatness””
–Time Out New York
Based on the novel by Haruki Murakami
Haruki Murakami’s bestselling novel is brought to the screen by Oscar nominee Tran Anh Hung (THE SCENT OF GREEN PAPAYA). Tokyo, the late 1960s… Students around the world are uniting to overthrow the establishment and Toru Watanabe’s personal life is similarly in tumult. At heart, he is deeply devoted to his first love, Naoko, a beautiful and introspective young woman. But their complex bond has been forged by the tragic death of their best friend years before. Watanabe lives with the influence of death everywhere. That is, until Midori, a girl who is everything that Naoko is not – outgoing, vivacious, supremely self-confident – marches into his life and Watanabe must choose between his past and his future.

About Sundance USA 2012.Sundance Institute recently announced the films from the 2012 Sundance Film Festival that will screen in independent theaters in nine different cities around the country. The screenings are part of Sundance Film Festival USA, a program designed to bring the Festival experience to film-loving audiences nationwide.

On January 26, the second Thursday of the Sundance Film Festival, nine filmmakers will each travel from Utah to one of the following cities: Ann Arbor, MI; Boston, MA; Brooklyn, NY; Chicago, IL; Houston, TX; Nashville, TN; Orlando, FL; San Francisco, CA; and Tucson, AZ. Their travel is courtesy of Official Airline Sponsor Southwest Airlines. In each city, the filmmaker will introduce and screen their film and participate in a Q&A with the audience. A video featuring highlights from this year’s Sundance Film Festival will precede each screening.

“Bringing new voices in independent cinema to communities across the country at the same time they’re breaking for the first time at the Sundance Film Festival is an exciting proposition for artists, audiences, and for us,” said Robert Redford, Founder and President of Sundance Institute. “Even with the accessibility of films everywhere, there is still something incomparable about discovering, with others, a new world in a great story onscreen.”

John Cooper, Director of the Sundance Film Festival, said, “Sundance Film Festival USA is our way of celebrating arthouse theatres across the country and thanking them for their year-round support of independent film. For these filmmakers, it’s also an opportunity to connect with the growing audiences for independent film outside of Utah and offer them a first look at the year ahead.”
