Pacino's passion: Wilde about Oscar

Actor and director Al Pacino has told Andrew Marr of his surprise at the contemporary nature of the play Salomé.

The Hollywood icon has won plaudits for his role as Herod in Salomé, for which he has also made a documentary charting his fascination with Wilde's writing.

Salomé and Wilde Salomé screen in a double bill on 21 September at the BFI Southbank in London, followed by a Q&A with Al Pacino and Jessica Chastain broadcast live to cinemas around the UK.
