Magic Lantern Film Society is delighted to anounce it’s long awaited
return to the Nerve Centre in Derry with it’s new programme of
classic, contemporary and special screening. The opening film of the
comming season will be Wim Wender’s latest Oscar nominated offering
PINA. There will be a wine reception at 7.00 and the film will
commence at 7.30.
Words are the enemy in WimWenders’s mysterious, submersive and tribute
to German dance pioneer Pina Bausch, who died in 2009 just as Wenders,
the director of ‘Buena Vista Social Club’ and ‘Wings of Desire’, was
beginning to make this film. Some will come to this film full of
knowledge of Bausch. For others, it will be as fresh and novel as
Wenders’s approach to turning dance into cinema.
A stunning film, a glorious homage to modern dance.
