PINA in 3D

dance, dance, otherwise we are lost

Directed by WIM WENDERS/2011/1hr, 46mins.

The boundless imagination and physical marvels of the work of the German modern-dance pioneer Pina Bausch leap off the screen in this exuberant tribute by Wim Wenders (Wings of Desire). A long-planned film collaboration between the director and the choreographer was in preproduction when Bausch died in 2009. Two years later, Wenders decided to go ahead with the project, reconceiving it as an homage to his late friend. The result, shot in stunning 3D, is a remarkable visual experience and a vivid representation of Bausch’s art, enacted by a group of staggeringly talented dancers from her company, the Tanztheater Wuppertal. Pina is an adventurous work of cinema that highlights the bold legacy of one of the world’s true creative visionaries.

WINNER: Cinema Eye Outstanding Achievement in Production

European Film Awards Documentary of the Year

“A haunting elegy of choreographer Pina Bausch with a wondrously surreal evocation of her work. Takes unprecedented advantage of 3-D”-Joe Morgenstern, Washington Post

“A unique and often sublime artistic experience, "Pina" is a 3-D dance film that immerses us in the movement, letting us feel that we could reach out and touch these dancers as they float past us.”-Seattle Times
