“Wings Of Desire” and “Buena Vista Social Club”, “Paris, Texas” and “The State Of Things”: Wim Wenders is considered one of the pioneers of New German Cinema and one of the most important and influential representatives of contemporary cinema. With never before shown archive material and extraordinary encounters with companions such as Francis Ford Coppola, Willem Dafoe, Andie MacDowell, Patti Smith and Werner Herzog, this documentary provides unique insights into the life and work of one of the most multifaceted artists of our times. Renowned documentary filmmaker Eric Friedler (“It Must Schwing. The Blue Note Story”) and his co-director Andreas Frege were given the exclusive opportunity to portray three-time Oscar nominee Wenders for this film. From Dusseldorf to Paris, and all the way to the desert of Texas, the film traces iconic locations and decisive moments in Wenders’ work as director, producer, photographer and author.
