Ernst Wilhelm “Wim” Wenders (German: [vɪm vɛndɐs]; born 14 August 1945) While promoting his 3-D dance film, Pina, Wenders told the Documentary channel Blog in December 2011 that he has already begun work on a new 3-D documentary, this one about architecture.
Pina is an aesthetic marvel. Wenders, like Martin Scorsese in The Last Waltzor Jonathan Demme in Stop Making Sense, exhibits an unshowy formal mastery; his camera is, simply, always in the right place. Wenders teases out the cinematic possibilities in dancing without diluting the art of either medium.
