    Wim Wenders auf ARTE

    By Dorothea Holloway | August 12, 2015

    Am 14. August hat Wim Wenders Geburtstag. Auf ARTE wurde gestern (10. August) Don’t Come Knocking gezeigt.

    Ein schöner Zufall wollte es, dass mir KINO – German Film No: 100 (2011) mit einem Foto von Wenders in die Hände kam mit dieser Überschrift: WIM WENDERS WITH LOLA. Einen Abschnitt aus dem Text, der dann folgt, möchte ich zitieren:

    And now, Wim Wenders’ wonderful homage for Pina Bausch Pina has opened in the cinemas – the 3D masterpiece was shown in the Berlinale’s Competition (out of competition). The audience and the »film buffs« were enthusiastic and full of praise. Wenders had long been driven by the fervent desire to make a film about Pina and the unique Tanztheater in Wuppertal. But how was one to capture the magic of the dance on the screen? At last, 3D came along! Pina and Wim both agreed: the dream of a dance film could now come true. But Pina Bausch passed away in summer 2009. Thank you, Wim Wenders, thank you, Tanztheater Wuppertal, for creating such a wonderful cinematic memorial for Pina Bausch. Grief gave way to dance. Drawing from four unforgettable choreographies – Sacre du PrintempsKontakthofCafè Müller and Vollmond – the artists (cinematography by Helene Louvart and Jörg Widmer) give us stunning images in stereoscopic 3D the like of which I have never seen before! What would Ron have said here? He also passed away in 2009. Perhaps he and Pina are now sitting and watching the film together – and they don’t even need 3D glasses.
