Essen – An evening with Wim at PACT Zollverein
The Event: Wim Wenders hosted an evening at the PACT Zollverein in connection with the 40th Anniversary of Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch. During the course of the evening Wim gave insight into his multi genre work via film clips and conversations with surprise guests.
His 3D film PINA, winner of the European Film Award in 2011, was dedicated to the dancer and choreographer Pina Bausch and honored the Tanztheater Wuppertal as a cultural institution of Germany’s historical industrial center, the Ruhrgebiet. Several of the scenes in PINA were shot against the background of the impressive sights at the Stiftung Zollverein.
