DOCUMENTARY FILM During the 35th Cannes Film Festival in 1982, Wim Wenders invited 15 colleagues to talk about the future of cinema. Room 666 at the Hotel Martinez. There a camera, a tape recorder and a note with the question: »Is cinema a language that is in danger of being lost, an art that is dying?«. Everyone was alone in the room and had about 11 minutes each to respond to the question. Participants included Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Jean-Luc Godard, Werner Herzog, Paul Morrissey and Steven Spielberg.
With his 1970s road movie trilogy, WIM WENDERS (*1945 in Düsseldorf) became one of the most important directors of New German Cinema. Tokyo-Ga (1985), Yamamoto (1989) and Until the End of the World (1991) were made in Japan. In 2017, he was awarded the Douglas Sirk Prize at FILMFEST HAMBURG.
