A journey of discovery through dance, originally shot in 3D to capture and pay tribute to the inventive world of the legendary choreographer Pina Bausch. We follow the dancers of Pina’s Tanztheater Wuppertal ensemble, out of the theatre and into the city of Wuppertal that she called home.
Between Buena Vista Social Club and The Salt of the Earth, Wim Wenders struck gold with Pina, an Academy Award®-nominated documentary profile of Pina Bausch. A fitting tribute to the iconic dancer and choreographer, a cinematic spectacle of movement, of bodies in motion on-stage and off.
