The Museum of Modern Art celebrates Wim Wenders with major career retrospective

The retrospective captures the breadth of Wenders’s career, from his 16mm experimental works of the late 1960s to the New York premiere of his most recent film, The Salt of the Earth (2014). Also presented are new digital restorations of some of Wenders’s most cherished fiction and nonfiction films: The Goalkeeper’s Anxiety at the Penalty Kick (1972); Alice in the Cities (1974); The American Friend (1977); Paris, Texas (1984); Tokyo-Ga (1985); Notebook on Cities and Clothes (1989); and the North American premiere of the full-length director’s cut of Until the End of the World (1991).

During the first week of introductions and Q&As at the MoMA, Wenders also talked about his passion for natural depth 3D with the members of the Directors Guild of America and discussed THE SALT OF THE EARTH together with co-director Juliano Ribeiro Salgado, film historian and professor Annette Insdorf and students of the Columbia University.
