Join us for a breakfast viewing and artist talk with filmmaker and photographer, Wim Wenders, on the occasion of his film retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art. Several of Wenders’ large-format photographs will be on view and he will briefly discuss his differing approaches to filmmaking and photography. Light breakfast refreshments will be served.
Wim Wenders is a renowned German film director, photographer, author and playwright. Born in 1945 in Dusseldorf, Germany, Wenders began his career with the rise of the New German Cinema at the end of the 1960s. Life on the road holds much allure for Wenders and has been the driving force in his cinematic and photographic oeuvres. His images of urban and rural landscapes function both as stories unfolding within a single frame and as archaeological dioramas, recording a specific moment in the life of a place. Wenders is the President of the European Film Academy and has received numerous honors for his work in film, including the Golden Lion, Golden Bear and Palme d’Or. Wim Wenders lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
