Buena Vista Social Club : the companion book to the film by Wim Wenders( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ry Cooder caused an international sensation when he introduced the world to Cuba's Son Musicians with his 1997 CD, Buena Vista Social Club. The CD, which met with extraordinary critical and popular success, went on to win a Grammy, and helped fuel America's current love affair with Latin music. In 1999 acclaimed director Wim Wenders released his documentary of the same name, in which he profiles the legendary Buena Vista Social Club musicians, recording their experiences as they performed in Cuba and abroad, eventually appearing at New York's Carnegie Hall. Hailed as splendid...a sheer delight (New York Post) a glowing-embers documentary (Washington Post) and a more incisive introduction to the peculiar world of Buena Vista than any live performance could provide (The New York Observer), the film helped immortalize both the music and its now-famous practitioners who had been living in near poverty, all but forgotten in their own country.<p>Now, the Buena Vista Social Club comes alive once more in this vibrant collection of photographs, film stills and text from director Wim Wenders and his wife, Donata. Taken during the filming of the documentary, these images are as enigmatic, sensual, and haunting as the music they celebrate. Included here are portraits of the artists themselves -- including Compay Segunda, Ibrahim Ferrer, and Ruben Gonzales -- recording and performing their magical music. Scenes of Havana street life, its gloriously decaying architecture, and its colorful denizens are accompanied by texts of their most famous songs, in both Spanish and English versions, as well as contributions from Wim and Donata Wenders and Ry Cooder. The perfect companion for fans of the CDand the movie, this magnificently produced volume also stands alone as a visual treat for anyone with a fascination for Cuba and its incredible, enchanting music
Pina : the film and the dancers by Donata Wenders( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and German and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pina Bausch (1940-2009) became a cult figure in the international dance scene with her "Tanztheater Wuppertal" which she both founded and directed. In her choreographies she combined classical dance with elements of performance art, mime, acrobatics, sports, acting, and song, thereby creating a new art genre that both suited the spirit of the times and, by the artistic radicality of her productions, set the parameters for the future of dance theater. Wim Wenders dedicates his remarkable documentary Pina to her oeuvre. The film won the Deutscher Filmpreis 2011 for best documentary and was nominated for the 2012 Oscar for best documentary. Donata Wenders' still camera accompanied the shooting of Wim Wenders' homage to Pina Bausch and her celebrated ensemble. This book offers a unique view of both the film and the stunning oeuvre of revolutionary choreographer Pina Bausch and her legendary dance company

Exposición sobre la obra fotográfica del director alemán Wim Wenders y su esposa Donata, directora de fotografía de sus filmes desde 1995. Recoge una selección de fotografías tomadas por ambos en los últimos quince años. Realizadas entre sus viajes personales y las pausas y descansos de los rodajes, las instantáneas de esta muestra reproducen dos mundos paralelos: uno en color en el que Wim Wenders retrata sobre todo lugares, y otro en blanco y negro, regido por su esposa Donata y habitado por retratos psicológicos y de estados de ánimo. La visión de ambos resulta, sin embargo, complementaria y está caracterizada por una pasión y un talento naturales en el desempeño de la fotografía y la persecución de la belleza en movimiento
