This month, Montage celebrates National Dance Day with a screening of the documentary, Pina, is a 2011 German film which examines the life and career of choreographer and contemporary dancer Pina Bausch. It was directed by Wim Wenders and premiered at the 61st Berlin International Film Festival. During the preparation of the documentary, Pina Bausch died unexpectedly. Wenders cancelled the film production, but the other dancers of Tanztheater Wuppertal convinced him to make the film anyway. It showcases these dancers, who talk about Pina and perform some of her best-known pieces inside the Tanztheater Wuppertal and in various outdoor locations around the city of Wuppertal.
