I saw this trailer on IMDB and was intrigued! It's a film tribute to the great dancer/choreographer Pina Bausch by Wim Wenders. She is a leading proponent of Tanztheater (dance theatre) and played an influencial role in the development of modern dance. The film is currently touring the festival circuit and is the official German entry to the 84th Academy Awards for Foreign Language Film. Unfortunately, during the making of the documentary, Pina Bausch passed away so most of the dances which she created are interpreted by other dancers. Nonetheless, they are exquisite and moving. I am eagerly anticipating this film!
