Wim Wenders - Cities and Roads

For all sorts of reasons, we are never done with Wim Wenders’ cinema and his way of apprehending narratively (sometimes with the complicity of the writer Peter Handke) and photogenically (by his lucky star) the 1970s, especially in Germany and the US. Seizing the opportunity of a new series of accessible restorations, we present several of his films that were commonly requested for years, including Alice in den Städten, with music by Can, the legendary Krautrock band. A few legendary films from the 80s and 90s that extend the plastic themes and concerns of his early era will also be shown.

Des quelques lignes de Motel chronicles, de Sam Shepard, fragments plus ou moins autobiographiques publiés en 1982, il est assez facile de passer à la première séquence, légendaire, de Paris, Texas, de Wim Wenders. Un paragraphe, une image - celle d'un homme qui tourne le dos à la route, part vers l'inconnu - ont fini par donner naissance à l'un des films les plus célèbres de l'histoire du cinéma.
