2011, IFC Films, 103 min, Germany, France, UK, Dir: Wim Wenders

Director Wim Wenders pays tribute to modern dance innovator Pina Bausch in this gorgeous, Oscar-nominated 3-D documentary. Bausch was set to collaborate with Wenders on a film when she died; rather than abandon the project, Wenders reconfigured it as a celebration and representation of the choreographer’s pioneering work. Using state of the art technology and expert dancers from Bausch’s own company, Wenders has created one of the most vivid and expressive dance films the cinema has ever seen. With English subtitles.
