Wim Wenders, one of the most accomplished directors of the “New German Cinema,” will be a guest at the upcoming Sarajevo Film Festival, bringing along his much-discussed 3D documentary “Pina” for a special presentation.
“Pina,” a feature-length glimpse at the legacy of iconic dancer and choreographer Pina Bausch, premiered earlier this year at the Berlin International Film Festival before becoming a surprise box office hit in Germany. The film will be released stateside by IFC Films.
Wenders, who is traveling with twelve of his students, will be giving lectures for aspiring filmmakers at the Sarajevo Talent Campus. The topic of discussion this year is “Our Time, My Viewpoint,” which will include screenings Wenders’ vast oeuvre and talks on his response to our changing times, including his surprising usage of 3D technology.
The 2011 Sarajevo Film Festival will take place July 22 – 30.
