The Making of Pina

The Making of Pina ★★★½

Doctober 2018/3

Wim Wenders - full of charm and wit - narrates this look into the process of making a performance documentary about Pina Bausch without her being present and using the 3D filming process. Even without the 3D "problem," Wenders' method is fascinating, but he details the many obstacles that 3D filming inserted into the production, not the least of which was the large equipment. I was able to see PINA in the theater twice upon its release, each time in 2D: watching this has me itching to see it in 3D format.
