We were over the moon this morning when we awoke to the thrilling news that Wim Wenders' stunning documentary Pina, about legendary artist (and member of the BAM family) Pina Bausch, had been nominated for Best Documentary in this year's Academy Awards. This is Wenders' second Oscar nomination and it is well-deserved. If you have yet to see the film, it is currently playing at BAM. If you've already seen it, we can personally attest that it is better your second time.
Wim Wenders visited BAM on January 8 to present Pina and to take part in a Q&A with Ellen Bar, former dancer with the New York City Ballet and current Director of Media Projects at NYCB. In this clip, he discusses how he spent 20 years trying to figure out how to film Pina's work until he got inspired by an unlikely source.
