"Dance, dance, otherwise we are lost"

Wim Wenders is one of my favourite directors. His work is so subtle, spare and beautiful. A true artist. So it has not surprised me that he has created an exquisite homage to the late modern dance choreographer Pina Bausch on film. AND presented it in 3D

Ms. Bausch saw art as a vehicle for social criticism. She wanted her audience to react as they felt. It didn't matter whether they simply liked what they saw. She wanted a response. It had to engage you - positive or negative.

The film premiered at The Berlin Film Festival 2011 and opens in Europe in April. I can't wait for it to come to Toronto. It looks magical and beautiful.
