Wim Wenders at Berlinale

Wim Wenders was honored, at Berlinale 2015, with a Honorary Golden Bear. The festival presented a retrospective of his films. His new film “Every Thing Will Be Fine” was shown in the festival’s main competition program (out of competition). In his text “Inner Realities / Outer Spaces in New German Cinema” Alonso Diaz follows the echoes of the former “New German Cinema” of the 60s in the Berlinale program of this year – with films from Wenders, Werner Herzog, Margarethe von Trotta. “Many of Wenders’ films”, writes Alonso Diaz, “find it irresistible to mention America and its strange icons: the music, the rock stars, the eccentricity of the Hollywood system, and the endurance of its rebels. Directors Sam Fuller and Douglas Sirk would make special appearances in Wenders’ films.” Alonso Diaz was one of the participants in the Talent Press workshop. Find his text here.
