Wim Wenders' stunning Pina pays tribute to acclaimed choreographer Bausch

Ditta Miranda Jasjfi performs in Vollmond, Pina Bausch's last complete work, in Pina.

Not pre-planned, however, was Wenders' brilliant decision to include "interviews" with the dancers. They silently look at the camera but their grief-stricken faces speak of loss, loneliness, and a sense of abandonment. They were thinking about Bausch's death, but perhaps also about her work. *

PINA opens Fri/20 in San Francisco.
