PINA - A film for PINA BAUSCH by WIM WENDERS.
PINA premieres in the official selection of the 61st Berlin International Film Festival (out of competition) on 13th of February.
PINA is a film for Pina Bausch by Wim Wenders. The feature-length dance film was shot in 3D with the ensemble of the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch and shows the exhilarating and inimitable art of the great German choreographer who died in the summer of 2009, inviting the viewer on a sensual, visually stunning journey of discovery into a new dimension: right onto the stage of the legendary ensemble and together with the dancers beyond the theater, into the city and the surrounding industrial landscape of Wuppertal – the place that was the home and center of Pina Bausch's creative life for more than 35 years.

Wenders talked before the movie for a good twenty minutes, discussing his extensive collaboration with Pina in an effort to capture her vibrant dance on film. After seeing his first 3D movie, only then did Wenders know that he could finally do justice to the magic of the Pina Bausch. Just as they were about to start shooting, Pina was diagnosed with cancer and passed away five days later at the age of 68 (Jun 30, 2009). After some time, the troupe decided to complete the film as a tribute to perhaps the most interesting dance choreographer and creative director in our lifetime.
