Pina is a captivating and immersive 3D film about German dance pioneer Pina Bausch, featuring the performers of the company she ran for 36 years. Director Wim Wenders (Buena Vista Social Club, Wings of Desire) takes the audience on a sensual, visually stunning journey of discovery, drawing us deeply into the unique and inspiring art of Bausch, who died in the summer of 2009 as Wenders started the film. Pina reinvigorates the way 3D technology can be used, giving the film a magical quality, turning dance into cinema. Wenders has found a way to translate Pina Bausch’s entrancing art of movement, gesture, speech and music into film, while seamlessly interweaving her presence and thoughts through the performances of her dancers.
Pina has been lauded by the critics with comments such as “this movie is so beautiful it aches”, “thrilling and revelatory” and “this is the beginning of a whole new use of 3D.” [IN AUSTRALIAN CINEMAS AUGUST 18]
