    Das fotografische Werk von Wim Wenders

    By Dorothea Holloway | October 15, 2015

    In der Galerie Blain|Southern in Berlin werden aktuelle Arbeiten des fotografischen Werks von Wim Wenders gezeigt.

    Lesenswert dazu im Berliner Tagesspiegel vom 10. Oktober 2015 von Christiane Meiner »Die Orte sprechen mit mir« – Interview mit Wim Wenders. Da Ron Holloway den Filmemacher Wenders so sehr geschätzt hat, möchte ich wieder aus KINO – German Film zitieren – und zwar aus No: 12 aus dem Jahre 1983:

    Known in film-buff circles as »a filmmakers’s filmmakers,« Wim Wenders never fails in his films to appear to a critic’s own cinematic sensibilities. His knowledge of film history, particularly American film history, is profound and extensive – indeed, his movies give you definite readings of movies he himself likes. And most of them are in the film noir-tradition. His first feature film, upon graduating from the Munich Film & Television Academy (HFF) – where his diploma-film, Summer in the city (1970), was somewhat of a sensation – was packed with references to American pop-culture: Die Angst des Tormanns beim Elfmeter (The Goalie’s Anxiety at the Penalty Kick) (1971). It was to establish his reputation almost immediately as the last member of the so-called Big Three in New GermanCinema, joining Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Werner Herzog in the magic circle.
