Amy, Marlon, Janis and Kurt's Documentaries Raise Ethical Questions

27 November 2015 10:30 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Glenn here. As the world of documentary filmmaking grows and grows, biography docs are among the most popular and easiest to sell. This pre-sold name-brand familiarity makes them more desirable to financiers, producers, directors, distributors, exhibitors, festivals, and ultimately audiences. It’s hardly surprising that of the Academy’s 124-strong long-list (to be narrowed to 15 any day now) at least 20 cover the life of a famous person in the public eye. And if you want to stretch the parameters to include institutions such as National Lampoon, Saturday Night Live, Tower Records, The Black Panthers, The Bolshoi Theatre etc, the number balloons. They are also among the highest profile submissions, too, with names like Nina Simone, Evel Kenievel and Chris Farley simply standing out more than geo-politics, homophobia in the Middle East, or Cambodian rock and roll.

This sub-category of documentary were once considered more frivolous and less serious, but have »

The director of recent documentaries Pina on the late great choreographer poet Pina Bausch and the Oscar nominated The Salt Of The Earth with Juliano Ribeiro Salgado on master photographer Sebastião Salgado, is in New York for Wim Wenders: Portraits Along The Road, the first stop for a major retrospective of his films. Wenders has many long-term collaborations along the way including Peter Handke and Nick Cave who will appear with Reda Kateb (great in David Oelhoffen's Albert Camus adaptation, Far From Men, opposite Viggo Mortensen) and Sophie Semin in his latest film, The Beautiful Days Of Aranjuez (Les Beaux Jours D’Aranjuez).

We also talked about how in Nanni Moretti's Mia Madre the poster of Wings Of Desire made it into a dream sequence and Wim's Film4Climate involvement.

King Of The Road: Five Films You Need To See During Janus Films’ Touring Wim Wenders Retrospective

28 August 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

Very few movements in film history have been as rewarding, and yet as undervalued among film fans, as that of the New German Cinema. With names like Rainer Werner Fassbinder now beginning to be muttered in broad collections of film fans, the world of German filmmaking that came to light in the late 1960s has birthed some of the greatest auteurs of its generation, even a handful that are still turning out some of their best work. Most notably filmmakers like Werner Herzog have transitioned from this movement into worlds that they themselves have broken the ground on.

Same could be said for one Wim Wenders.

Best known for masterpieces like Wings Of Desire and Paris, Texas, the filmmaker is to this day pushing the boundaries of what cinema can do. With 3D films like Pina and his startlingly poignant Salt Of The Earth, Wenders has had a more than productive career spanning 5 decades, »

Exclusive: Poster For New Wim Wenders Upcoming Retrospective Tour ‘Portraits Along The Road’

14 August 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Happy 70th birthday, Wim Wenders. The venerable German auteur is perhaps best known for cinema classics “Wings of Desire,” “Paris, Texas,” and his three Oscar nominated documentaries “Buena Vista Social Club,” the 3D contemporary dance portrait “Pina,” and his most recent photography film “The Salt of the Earth.” But Wenders, whose works stands alongside Werner Herzog, Agnes Varda, Andrzej Wajda, Jacques Rivette and other elder statesmen and women of European cinema has been woefully under the radar in North America. This is because, as he explained to us in an interview earlier this year, most of this early, classic films from the 1970s have been unavailable on DVD because of unresolved rights clearances and ownership issues. With those problems resolved very recently, the Criterion Collection and Janus Films are working together to rectify cinephiles’ knowledge of Wenders’s vast, eclectic and amazing body of work. Last week, Janus Films announced "Wim Wenders:. »

Clash of the titans through a lens by Richard Mowe

The epic still photographs of Brazilian artist and environmentalist Sebastião Salgado take pride of place in a spectacular new documentary about his life and work. Directed by Wim Wenders (Buena Vista Social Club, Pina) in association with Salgado’s son, Juliano Ribeiro Salgado, The Salt Of The Earth was awarded Un Certain Regard Special Jury Award at the Cannes Film Festival and was Oscar nominated. The relationship between Salgado fils and Wenders was strained to breaking point at times...

Wim Wenders: misfit, outsider and the man who helped America to see itself

27 June 2015 4:04 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

After half a century of making films, the director is back on form with The Salt of the Earth and shows no signs slowing down

Wim Wenders is responsible for some of the most profound films made about America – quite a feat considering he doesn’t have a drop of starred-and-striped blood in his body. Paris, Texas is the obvious example: a western in mood and iconography, no matter that it is set in 1980s Los Angeles. It won the Palme d’Or at Cannes in 1984 and remains the director’s masterpiece. In that film, and many others, he showed the world what America looked like, and helped America to see itself through foreign eyes. Even those pictures not set in the Us – such as the great 1970s road movies Alice in the Cities and Kings of the Road, which made Wenders an arthouse darling – explore the influence, the voodoo romanticism, »

Misunderstanding 3-D Indeed

3 June 2015 2:24 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

A New Yorker article purporting to set us right about 3-D suggests that bonafide artists are discovering its aesthetic potential, from Jean-Luc Godard to recent Cannes entrant Gasper Noe. As the commercial use of 3-D is widespread and fully a third of theaters are equipped with digital 3-D, the writer asks if a "new breed of uppity 3-D" is at hand. "Could this be the onset of a novel, highbrow age in 3-D cinema?" While the piece mentions Wim Wenders' "Pina" and Werner Herzog's "Cave of Forgotten Dreams," and makes passing reference to James Cameron's "Avatar," there is no discussion of two Hollywood master auteurs who have led the way in the use of groundbreaking and masterful 3-D: Martin Scorsese ("Hugo") and Ang Lee ("Life of Pi"). Which leads me to wonder if this writer has a clue what he is talking about.  »

Wim Wenders' new film to star Sophie Semin and Reda Kateb Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

The Salt Of The Earth and Pina director, Wim Wenders, has begun filming his first French-language film an hour northwest of Paris in the Vexin area. It is based on a Peter Handke text he calls "a summer dialogue" and the title of the film will be Les Beaux Jours d’Aranjuez (The Beautiful Days Of Aranjuez), which is the first line of Friedrich Schiller's play Don Carlos. Wim's description follows: "It’s a woman and a man talking to each other, for an indefinite amount of time (the whole summer?) about love, sex, time, nature, memory…"

The man is portrayed by Reda Kateb, who starred opposite Viggo Mortensen in David Oelhoffen's elegiac Loin Des Hommes (Far From Men) based on the Albert Camus short story L'Hôte, and the woman is Sophie Semin. »

3D in the 21st Century. Resurrecting "Pina": Wim Wenders' Eulogy for a Lost Friend

15 May 2015 10:03 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

It was 1973 when German choreographer Pina Bausch became the artistic director of the Wuppertal Opera Ballet, where she would go on to transform the company with her radical approach to dance theater. One year prior, director Wim Wenders began making a name for himself stateside when his sophomore feature The Goalie's Anxiety at the Penalty Kick played at MoMA’s New Directors/New Films. Twelve years later, their respective success was on the rise: in 1984 Bausch had her New York premiere at Bam (where she presented such seminalworks as Café Müller and The Rite of Spring), while Wenders won the coveted Palme d’Or for his masterpiece Paris, Texas. The following year, Wenders experienced Bausch’s work for himself—and when he did, he knew it would change his life.Wenders immediately arranged to meet Bausch for coffee and told her he wanted to collaborate. But it wasn’t until »

With Cathedrals of Culture, Wim Wenders Aspires to Capture the Souls of Buildings

28 April 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Wim Wenders has been entranced with 3-D — which he calls the new language of cinema — ever since Pina, his great film tribute to Pina Bausch. He's a man on a mission, searching for a topic that might work as well as dance (and movement). To that end, he became an executive producer for six fairly short films about architecture, and directed one himself. But in instances where visual layers are not abundant, or a building is not multifaceted or -functional, architects themselves become the films' topics. Is this a bit of a cheat? Well, the directors' names are stellar enough, and the buildings famous.

Cathedrals of Culture posits that buildings have a spirit, a genius loci of atmosphere attached to place. If you buy into that, it follows that they »

Watch: Wenders, Redford, Glawogger and More Direct Massive 3D Project 'Cathedrals of Culture'

8 April 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Subtitled “a 3D film project about the soul of buildings,” "Cathedrals of Culture" is a program of six films by noted filmmakers that first premiered in Berlin in 2014 to raptures of acclaim. “An idealistic, high-minded meditation on architecture, the public space and the life of the mind," wrote The Guardian. “One of the most fervent hymns to architecture ever sung," said THR. "Cathedrals of Culture" finally gets its stateside release on May 1, exclusively at the IFC Center in two parts. Select screenings will include Q&As with architects and experts in the field. Originally conceived by Wim Wenders, who directed a vignette on the uber-modern Berlin Philharmonic, "Cathedrals" also profiles a science center, the world's "most humane" prison and other cultural institutions. Since "Pina" (2011), Wenders has continued to push into 3D, with "Cathedrals" and his 2015 Berlinale redemption drama "Every »

The Salt Of The Earth Review

31 March 2015 5:48 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’s a perceptible reverence for Sebastião Salgado and his work as a social issues photographer in the Oscar-nominated documentary The Salt of the Earth, out this Friday in New York and Los Angeles. Considering the filmmakers’ relationship with their subject, it isn’t hard to figure out why. Three time Oscar nominee and The Salt of the Earth co-director, Wim Wenders (Buena Vista Social Club, Pina) bought one of Sebastião’s photos when he first discovered him, and immediately became enchanted with both the photography and the man. Wenders’ co-director is Juliano Salgado, Sebastião’s son who first began filming his father when Sebastião asked Juliano to accompany him on a trip to photograph the reclusive Amazonian Zo’é tribe.

Wenders and the younger Salgado spent several years assembling a documentary that combines intimate behind-the-scenes moments alongside Sebastião as he makes progress on his “Genesis” collection with reflective examinations »

How Wenders and Father and Son Salgado Brought 'Salt of the Earth' to Life

You've seen Sebastião Salgado's photographs, even if you did not know who shot them. The Brazilian photographer has been wandering the globe, seeking out some of the most benighted places on earth and finding hideous beauty there. Even more than some war photographers, he has seen the worst of humanity. And after decades he did burn out on The Horror and had to go home to the plantation where he grew up to find renewal.
