Filmmaker Wim Wenders is among the most respected German directors. The legendary 73-year-old is known for many films made throughout a career that runs from the 1970s until today.
Among his most beloved films is the deeply poetic and philosophical Wings of Desire, about an angel that falls in love with a human and decides to become a mortal.
A gorgeous new restoration of Wings of Desire (originally released in 1987) is at the centre of a ‘Wim Wenders Weekend’ coming to Sydney’s Golden Age Cinema on Saturday October 6 and Sunday October 7.
Wings of Desire will play on October 6 in addition to a screening of Paris, Texas earlier that day and a screening of the rarely-exhibited 1974 road movie Alice in the Cities on Sunday October 7.
Over the years Wenders has received a range of honours and distinctions, including three Oscar nominations. His other films include Buena Vista Social Club, Pina, The End of Violence and the recently released Submergence.
