Get yourselves immediately to the cinema to see Pina, Wim Wenders amazing film-memorial of the choreographer Pina Bausch. It is ground-breaking in its (subtle) use of 3D and depiction of dance on the screen. Bausch was quoted to say that she is “not interested in how people move but in what moves them.” That sentiment is in full effect in this film.
Can this be the start of a new genre of film-dance? I certainly hope so. I could imagine Wenders in a new collaboration with, say, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, a romp through the Giardini in Venice. Pina not only made me want to dance, it made me introspective in a way most films rarely do.
