    The Magic Of Pina Bausch

    Legendary choreographer Pina Bausch died unexpectedly only 2 days before filming of PINA was set to begin in 2009, but through their grief her dancers created this loving tribute to Pina's incredible life and work. The 3D film has quietly begun trickling into U.S. theaters with hopes for wider release in 2012.

    PINA is a feature-length dance film in 3D with the ensemble of the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, featuring the unique and inspiring art of the great German choreographer Pina Bausch, who died in the summer of 2009. PINA is directed by Wim Wenders (Buena Vista Social Club, Wings of Desire), who was a long-standing friend of Pina's. Wenders takes the audience on a sensual, visually stunning journey of discovery into a new dimension: straight onto the stage with the legendary ensemble and follows the dancers out of the theatre into the city and the surrounding areas of Wuppertal - the place, which for 35 years was the home of Pina Bausch. PINA reinvigorates the way 3D film technology can be used.
