Wim Wenders' 'Pina' Wins German Documentary Award
Wim Wenders' 3D dance doc premiered at the Berlin Film Festival.
COLOGNE, Germany - Wim Wenders' 3D dance documentary Pina won the German documentary film prize, handed out Thursday night at the Dokville tradeshow in Ludwigsburg.
“With the 3D technology (Wenders) breaks through to a new aesthetic dimension. Not simply to create an effect. The dancing within (the 3D) space brings the audience closer to the film’s protagonists in the best tradition of documentary filmmaking,” said Peter Boudgoust, director of German pubweb SWR as he presented the award.
Wenders' 3D homage to legendary choreographer Pina Bausch premiered to audience and critical acclaim at the Berlin International Film Festival in February. The film recently won the Best Documentary prize at Germany’s film acadamy honors, the Lolas.
