Wim Wenders: Portraits Along the Road

Friday, December 4 – Sunday, December 13, 2015

The Brattle is thrilled to be the Boston-area location for this major touring retrospective of one of contemporary cinema’s most indelible artists. This program includes exciting new restorations including extensive work on the classic KINGS OF THE ROAD and Wenders’ first film THE GOALIE’S ANXIETY AT THE PENALTY KICK. The program also includes the first wide-distribution of Wenders’ preferred cut of the art-sci-fi epic UNTIL THE END OF THE WORLD which clocks in at nearly five hours.

Wim Wenders is cinema’s preeminent poet of the open road, soulfully following the journeys of people as they search for themselves. During his over-forty-year career, Wenders has directed films in his native Germany and around the globe; making dramas both intense and whimsical, mysteries, fantasies, and documentaries. With this retrospective of 12 of his films, audiences can rediscover Wenders’s vast cinematic world – from early works of the New German Cinema (ALICE IN THE CITIES, KINGS OF THE ROAD) to the art-house 1980s blockbusters that made him a household name (PARIS, TEXAS; WINGS OF DESIRE) to inquisitive nonfiction looks at world culture (TOKYO-GA, BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB). For cinephiles, this entire series is an unmissable event!
