Film Autopsy of the movie "Pina"

by Salman Hameed

Couple of weeks ago I had a chance to see this fantastic film, Pina, in 3D. It is one of those rare instances where the use of 3D is inventive, creative, and stunning. The movie is inspired by - and a tribute to - the choreography of Pina Bausch, and is directed Wim Wenders. Originally the movie was supposed be a joint project between Pina and Wenders - but Pina was diagnosed with cancer and dies soon after. Wenders ended up making a very different film - a film that serves as a tribute to Pina's choreography.

First here is our film autopsy of Pina - but please check below a couple of clips from the film (of course, you have to see the film on the big screen and in 3D to really appreciate it). Of course you can find more film autopsies here.



Here is a short trailer that gives you a bit of a taste of the film:


There are a number of spectacular of sequences. But here is a short clip that I particularly liked:
