Wim Wenders on "Pina"

Friday, December 23, 2011

Director Wim Wenders talks about his 3D documentary “Pina,” about the legendary choreographer Pina Bausch. Wenders and Bausch had conceived a dance film like none seen before, but after her untimely death in 2009, Wenders continued with the project, turning it into a tribute, rendering the beauty and physicality of the dances and dancers of her Tanztheater Wuppertal ensemble. “Pina” opens in New York Friday, December 23, at the Walter Reade Theater, IFC Center, and BAM.

With tickets for tonights 7:30pm showing already in my pocket, I was deeply appreciative for this enlightening interview in preparation for it. Just back, I'd like to attest to an exceptional experience. Thank you Wim Wenders!!!
I would like to give special accolades to the sound, music, all audibles, lyrics, rhythms. I am German, but 48 years in America and was mesmerized. Also the backdrop of Wuppertal has been put to dramatic use. Truly splendid.
And Leonard, the 3-D glasses worked beautifully, no pain at all. Thank you.
