Pina (Wim Wenders) 3D 'dance' bio-pic 2011/2012



currently out in New York City, the film will have it's national rollout in January:

"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." (Sundance Selects press release)"

Really sad I missed it in Hong Kong. I believe there are two Pina docs released in 2011.

oh I am so angry... a week ago the Washington Post stated the film was supposed to open yesterday, and even a review popped up in the Weekend section yesterday - but did it actually open? NO - considering this is Oscar nominated - it better open next week - ugh... I'm dying to see this!

Yeah, I'm interested in this as well.

I'd actually would like to see more of Pina's work for sure. Intriguing choreography.

Weird. Certainly more interesting than the urban booty dance movies that come out every 3 months but still weird.
