The California Film Institute presents a special screening of Sean Penn’s newest directorial accomplishment, INTO THE WILD, in honor of the 30th Anniversary of the Mill Valley Film Festival. Actor-writer-director Sean Penn masterfully crafts a visually stunning and emotional true story of a young man’s self-imposed exodus from the comforts of the modern world into the feral heart of the Alaskan wilderness. Based on Jon Krakauer’s bestselling book, the film features a star-making turn by Emile Hirsch. Both director Penn and star Emile Hirsch will be present. The screening will be followed by a reception at San Rafael Joe’s, 931 Fourth Street.
