Pina cover


In his exhilarating new film, German master Wim Wenders (Wings of Desire, The Buena Vista Social Club) shoots in 3D to capture the brilliantly inventive dance world of legendary choreographer Pina Bausch. Wenders had conceived with Bausch a dance film like none seen before, one which would take the fullest advantage yet of new 3D technology to put the viewer deep inside Bausch’s playful, thrillingly unpredictable pieces. After her untimely death in 2009, Wenders continued with the project, turning it into the most exciting tribute he could imagine. Sensual and visually stunning, PINA uses 3D to remarkable effect, taking the audience into Bausch’s work in her imaginative sets (a gliding monorail, a bare stage covered with chairs, a towering man-made waterfall) and powerfully rendering the beauty and sheer physicality of the dances and dancers of her Tanztheater Wuppertal ensemble.

1 Visitor Review for Pina

  1. michelle says:

    if you love dance, music, inter-dis work or are just an explorer of the artistic world, PINA is for you: beautiful, profound, extremely provocative and delightful. The music is wonderful but how it is used & sometimes, juxtaposed with the action itself, is what is so compelling. This film is a testament Pina’s life’s work, her unique vision and vocabulary and humanity, and also a tribute to the courageous, committed, lion hearted souls of each dancer. Seeing a snippet of “RIte of SPRING” in 3D is worth thrice the price of admission.
