“Dance, dance, or we are lost.” Pina Bausch’s final words summarize her life and provide the inspiration for acclaimed director Wim Wenders’ (WINGS OF DESIRE, BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB) breathtaking tribute to the legendary choreographer. Bausch and her Tanztheater Wuppertal elevated dance into brilliantly subversive new expressive realms, and in this exhilarating film Wenders captures the raw, heart-stopping intensity of the movement. An official selection of the Berlinale, Telluride, Toronto and New York film festivals, and nominated in 2012 for the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, PINA features interviews with and performances by Bausch's beloved original company members, and offers an indelible image of an artist who went the full distance in her uncommonly rich creative life.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The power and intelligence of Bausch's approach, which at times seems more cerebral than sensual, is communicated.
Fresh: So this is what 3-D is capable of when used for art rather than the commerce of hiking ticket prices and repurposing cartoons!
Fresh: Pina is, in every way, a moving experience.
Fresh: Whether you're familiar with Pina Bausch's work or not, the new film "Pina" is a knockout.
