PINA- a film for Pina Bausch by Wim Wenders

The movie PINA looks AMAZING. I am of huge fan of her work. When she passed away around two years ago I went though all her perfomences on YouTube I could find. Wim Wenders, also known for Buena Vista Social Club, had a long friendship with the artist and had talked about doing some kind of collaboration before she passed but he couldn't figure out the right way to honor her art. The idea of it being in 3D finally struck them and they finally started production when Pina died unexpectedly in 2009. After some time of mourning he realized this was even more important than before, to share her art with a broader audience.
