Wim Wenders: Portraits Along the Road

Kicking off later this month is a retrospective screening series of a filmmaker that more people should know about. His name is Wim Wenders, one of the major figures in New German Cinema, who has been making films for over 40 years. His most recent work includes the drama Every Thing Will Be Fine (which I saw in Berlin), his photographer documentary The Salt of the Earth (which I adore), and the dancer documentary Pina, which was filmed in 3D. The retrospective spans his entire career and will include screenings in 15 cities showing restored 4K or 2K versions of his early work, including Paris, Texas, Tokyo-Ga, American Friend, Wings of Desire and of course The Goalie's Anxiety at the Penalty Kick. Catch a short trailer below.

Here's the trailer for the Wim Wenders: Portraits Along the Road retrospective series, via YouTube:

Funny how we take so many of the perspective shots for granted nowadays. Hat tip for the share, AB!

Hmmmm, presented by Janus Films eh? I hope that means we might be seeing some of these films get the Criterion treatment down the road.
