A retrospective of Wim Wenders


2nd. Malatya International Film Festival will be held from 18th to 24th November 2011.  With the support of the Malatya Apricot Research, Development and Promotion Foundation and Malatya Governorship, festival is led by Malatya Governor Ulvi Saran and organized by World Mass Media Research Foundation.  The Festival will be bringing the best Wim Wenders films to the festival goers in Malatya this year.  One of the most important representatives of the ‘New German Cinema’, Wim Wenders is known with his films reflecting 1968’s ideas of freedom, new way of life and his passion for social criticism. Wenders won the ‘Palme d'Orat Cannes in 1984 with his enduring film ‘PARIS, TEXAS’ and the ‘Best Director’ Award in 1987 at Cannes with his film ‘WINGS OF DESIRE’ (Der Himmel über Berlin). Wenders’s latest 3D musical film about the life of Pina Bausch – An influencial leading artist in the world of modern dance - also competed at Cannes Film Festival this year. Wim Wenders is a consultant at the World Cinema Foundation which is formed to protect and restore films.   The films to be screened in Malatya under the title of ‘Wim Wenders in the Course of Time’  are;  DER HIMMEL ÜBER BERLIN / WINGS OF DESIRE, West Germany, France 1987, 128’ The sky over Wenders’ war-scarred Berlin is full of angels who listen to the tortured thoughts of mortals and try to comfort them. These are not ordinary angels we used to know. Unseen and unheard by the other people, these are two ordinary men wearing trench coats and observing and listening to the diverse thoughts of Berliners. Only kids and other angels could see them. The film is set at the ends of 1980s, where Germany (and Berlin) is still divided as East and West. Then one of the angels falls in love with a beautiful trapeze artist, Marion. 1987 Best Director, Cannes FF1987 Best German Film, Gildepreis in Silver1988 Best Director, European Film Prize1988 German Film Prize in Gold, Best Director1988 Bavarian Film Prize, Director  LISBON STORY, Germany, Portugal, 1994, 100’  Our story starts with a postcard and a rather cryptic message: “Dear Phil, I cannot continue m.o.s.! -S.O.S.!- Come to Lisbon with all your stuff a.s.a.p.! Big hug, Fritz.” Who is who? And what do all those abbreviations mean? The SOS of course, is obvious, and a.s.a.p. only strengthens the urgency: come AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. But m.o.s.? DER STAND DER DINGE / THE STATE OF THINGS, West Germany, Portugal, USA 1982, 121’“The State of Things” is a highly autobiographical work concerning a shoestring movie producer and his ragtag crew. Stranded in the outer reaches of Portugal, the director does not even have any film in his camera. There's nothing left to do but scare up a potential backer -- preferably one of those rich, movie-mad Americans. PARIS, TEXAS, West Germany, France, UK, USA 1984, 148’This unusual road movie, with screenplay by acclaimed playwright Sam Shepard, tells the tale of Travis, a man lost in his own private hell. Presumed dead for four years, he reappears from the desert on the Mexico border, world-weary and an amnesiac.  1984 Palme d’Or, Cannes FF1984 British Academy Award 1984 French Film Critic's Prize 1984 Film Award in Silver, German Film Awards PINA, Germany, France, UK 2011, 100’, 2011 Best Documentary, German Film AwardsPina Bausch is a legendary dancer and choreographer. Her unique creations transformed the language of dance and offer a visual experience like no other. This revolutionary 3D film “Pina” from director Wim Wenders captures the aesthetic of Pina Bausch’s greatest works in a thrilling way. IM LAUF DER ZEIT / KINGS OF THE ROAD, West Germany 1976, 175’“Kings of the Road”, focuses on the relationship that develops between two men - movie projector repairman Bruno and suicidal Robert - as they travel in a truck on the dusty roads along the border between East and West Germany. Lonely and introspective, they both long for the company of women. By the end of their journey, they derive comfort from the fact that “Kings of the Road”, their lives have taken on some shape and some significance. 1976 FIPRESCI Prize, Cannes FF1976 Golden Hugo, Chicago FF -END-WATCH MALATYA FILM FESTIVAL  VIDEOFor further information please contact;Ms. Müge Çetinkaya;
