“Film is a very, very powerful medium. It can either confirm the idea that things are wonderful the way they are, or it can reinforce the conception that things can be changed.” - Wim Wenders
- Pina Bausch (1940–2009) became a cult figure in the international dance scene with her "Tanztheater Wuppertal" which she both founded and directed.
In her choreographies she combined classical dance with elements of performance art, mime, acrobatics, sports, acting, and song, thereby creating a new art genre that both suited the spirit of the times and, by the artistic radicality of her productions, set the parameters for the future of dance theater.
- Wim Wenders dedicates his remarkable documentary Pina to her oeuvre. The film won the Deutscher Filmpreis 2011 for best documentary and was nominated for the 2012 Oscar for best documentary.
- Donata Wenders’ still camera accompanied the shooting of Wim Wenders’ congenial homage to Pina Bausch and her celebrated ensemble. This book offers a unique view of both the film and the stunning oeuvre of revolutionary choreographer Pina Bausch and her legendary dance company.
