We are very proud to announce that Wim Wenders’ PINA has been nominated for an Oscar in the Best Documentary category.
Congratulations to Wim and the entire cast and crew!
Read Wenders’ reaction to being nominated below:
“It’s fantastic to be nominated for Best Documentary for the second time after Buena Vista Social Club, especially as it is the first time for a 3D film to be given that honor. All the dancers and collaborators of the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, together with the crew and the production company Neue Road Movies, are extremely honored. With our journey into the magical kingdom of the great German choreographer Pina Bausch we wanted to raise a monument to this pioneer of modern dance. The worldwide success of Pina and now this Oscar nomination are fantastic rewards and recognition of our common work.”
PINA continues to expand to theaters nationwide in 3D.
