Exhibition: Wenders in the Cities

Exclusive material from the Wim Wenders Archive

Presented by the Goethe-Institut Toronto in collaboration with the Wim Wenders Foundation Düsseldorf

Accompanying our 6-part city film retrospective, the Goethe-Institut presents a selection of photos, posters and other exclusive material from the Wim Wenders Archives to illustrate and illuminate Wenders' broad international practice.

Wim Wenders was born in Düsseldorf in 1945. After discovering his love for cinema in Paris, he attended film school in Munich and became a major figure in New German Cinema. Active as a photographer and writer, he has made more than 50 films all over the world since 1971. His numerous awards include the Golden Lion, the Palme d'Or and the European Film Award. He teaches at the Hamburg Academy of Arts and lives in Berlin and Dusseldorf. Three times Oscar nominated for his documentaries "Buena Vista Social Club" (for which he is working on a sequel), "PINA" and "Salt of the Earth", Wim Wenders was honoured with a Golden Bear at this year's Berlinale.
