A director that jumps between the world of fiction and the world of documentaries is a rare one, but Wim Wenders is no ordinary director. According to Christopher Campbell’s excellent interview over at Documentary Channel, the veteran chameleon auteur (figure that oxymoron out) will pivot from the breathtaking dancing doc tribute to choreographer Pina Bausch to the bricks and mortar of architecture.
Like Pina, which is in theaters now, the new production will be in 3D. Wenders had this to say, “I have always wanted to do a film about architecture, and I have a lot of architect friends. But that is another subject I never really knew how to approach with film. I realized through Pina that architecture is something that could have a real affinity to this medium. We started shooting already, but it’s at the very, very beginning. That’s going to be my next documentary project in 3D, but I would definitely also do a narrative film in the future in 3D as well.”
The good news? This is going to be amazing. The bad news? It’ll probably be a few years before it’s ready. Then again, good things come to those who wait.
