Film Screening: Pina


Location: DeBartolo Performing Arts Center, Browning Cinema

Directed by Wim Wenders (rated PG, 103 minutes, subtitled)

Kevin Dreyer, associate professor in the Department of Film, Television, and Theatre will introduce the film.

“Dance, dance, or we are lost.” Pina Bausch’s final words summarize her life and provide the inspiration for acclaimed director Wim Wenders’ breathtaking tribute to the legendary choreographer. Bausch and her Tanztheater Wuppertal elevated dance into brilliantly subversive new expressive realms, and in this exhilarating film, Wenders captures the raw, heart-stopping intensity of the movement and transforms it into a transcendent cinematic experience.

An Oscar nominee for Best Documentary, PINA features interviews with and performances by Bausch’s beloved original company members and offers an indelible image of an artist who went the full distance in her uncommonly rich creative life.
