Germany 2022 – Director: Florian Heinzen-Ziob – Original language: English, French, German, Portuguese – Subtitles: English, German

A film you wish will never come to an end. The camera follows two re-enactments of Pina Bausch’s work. One thing was always close to the celebrated dancer’s heart: her choreography should live. The new dancers sweat, feel, cry and work hard. In their movements, it becomes clear what makes Pina’s work so exceptional: its truthfulness. Daniela Graf

We present the world premiere of the film.
