After the successful Werner Herzog and Rainer Werner Fassbinder retrospectives organized by the Goethe-Institut in Manila these past two years, the Goethe-Institut will now present the works of the well-acclaimed German filmmaker, Wim Wenders, who among Herzog and Fassbinder was a principal member of the New German Cinema of the 1970s. Nine award-winning Wim Wenders feature films and a documentary will be screened for free every weekend at 4 pm starting this April 27 to May 26 at the Cinematheque Centre Manila.
German Filmmaker Wim Wenders
Wim Wenders (born 1945) came to international prominence as one of the pioneers of the New German Cinema in the 1970s and is considered to be one of the most important figures in contemporary German film. In addition to his many prizewinning feature films, his work as a scriptwriter, director, producer, photographer, and author also encompasses an abundance of innovative documentary films, international photo exhibitions and numerous monographs, film books and prose collections. He lives and works in Berlin, together with his wife Donata Wenders.
