Pandora's Children: The Rise and Fall of Auteurist 3D

February 23 through March 3 

Screening in celebration of Wim Wenders Anselm. All films will be presented in Real D 3D

James Cameron’s AVATAR heralded a revival of 3D films that lasted about five years, during which auteurist filmmakers pushed the limits of 3D, moving beyond the 20th Century B-movie, to treating the screen like a proscenium and adding true depth. This renaissance included documentaries, science fiction thrillers, and dramas alike, all pushing the art of cinema forward.

One iconoclastic auteur continues to carry the torch for the promise of 3D beyond CGI spectacle: Wim Wenders. In tribute to him and his vision, we are centering our series around our presentation of his new film ANSELM, and opening the series with a retrospective look at his landmark 3D feature documentary PINA.

In his exhilarating new film, German master Wim Wenders shoots in 3D to capture the brilliantly inventive dance world of legendary choreographer Pina Bausch. Sensual and visually stunning, PINA uses 3D to remarkable effect, taking the audience into Bausch’s work in her imaginative sets (a gliding monorail, a bare stage covered with chairs, a towering man-made waterfall) and powerfully rendering the beauty and sheer physicality of the dances and dancers of her Tanztheater Wuppertal ensemble.

But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The Shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone-tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness of space. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.
