Pina Official Trailer

"Dance, dance… otherwise we are lost." Today's indie trailer I'm featuring is for an interpretive dance documentary called Pina, shot and shown in 3D (which actually works very well), featuring choreographed dances from legendary German dancer Pina Bausch. The trailer is the official Australian trailer via Awards Daily, and is worth watching for those who might be interested in this. I saw the film at the Telluride Film Fest, but didn't really care for it, there's no context and nothing to it besides these dances, but if that's your thing, you may love it. They don't show my favorite number with chairs being stacked, but it's a good trailer.

Watch the first official trailer for Wim Wenders' 3D dance doc Pina, embedded via YouTube:

Pina is a feature-length dance film in 3D with the Tanztheater Wuppertal ensemble, featuring the unique and inspiring art of the great German choreographer Pina Bausch, who died in 2009. Pina is directed by German filmmaker Wim Wenders (Buena Vista Social Club, Wings of Desire), who was a long-standing friend of Pina's. Wenders takes the audience on a sensual, visually stunning journey of discovery into a new dimension: straight onto the stage with the legendary ensemble and follows the dancers out of the theatre into the city and the surrounding areas of Wuppertal. The film already opened in Germany this year, and has played at numerous international film festivals, including Berlin, Moscow, Helsinki, Telluride and Toronto.

Not really my cup of tea but I do like how several scenes challenge my perceptions (the Asian woman with the man's arms, the underhanging monorail at the end).

I like the look of lots of it. The settings are really nice too. In the tunnel scene there is some paintings by Brazilian super twins Os Gemeos too. Something different for a change.

I'm really curious who put this trailer together. It may even be better than the film.
