The 3D picture looks at the work of the late German choreographer Pina Bausch.

Sundance Selects has picked up U.S. rights to Wim Wenders' 3D documentary Pina. Touted as the world's first 3D art film, the HanWay Films doc looks at the work of the late German choreographer Pina Bausch.

Sundance Selects president Jonathan Sehring said, "This one-of-a-kind spectacle is going to knock out not only dance fans but anyone interested in great cinema. This is Wim Wenders at the top of his game."

Pina debuted at the Berlin Film Festival in Feb. to positive reviews: THR's Deborah Young called it a "must for dance buffs everywhere."

British indie Artificial Eye picked up all U.K. rights to Pina in Feb.

The film bows in France on April 6, in the U.K. on April 12 and in the U.S. on April 22.
