A collection of essays in which Wim Wenders presents his observations and reflections on the fellow artists who have influenced, shaped and inspired him.
The Pixels of Paul Cezanne is a collection of essays by Wim Wenders which he presents his observations and reflections on the fellow artists who have influenced, shaped and inspired him.
"How are they doing it?" is the key questions Wenders asks as he looks at the dance work of Pina Bausch, the paintings of Cezanne, Edward Hopper of Andrew Wyeth, or the films of Ingmar Bergman, Michelanelo Antonioni, Ozu, Anthony Mann, Douglas Sirk and Sam Fuller.
He finds the answer by writing about them, trying to understand their individual perspective, and, in the process revealing his own art of perception, in texts of rare poignancy.
Wim Wenders is the award-winning film-maker of the feature films Paris, Texas, Wings of Desire, and The American Friend, as well as the documentaries The Buena Vista Social Club, Pina and Salt of the Earth.
His photographs have been exhibited internationally.
His new film, Submergence, with Alicia Vikander and James McAvoy, will be released in 2017.
