Wim Wenders

Born in Düsseldorf, Germany in 1945, Wenders holds a pivotal place in the world of film. His works have won numerous awards at world-class film festivals such as those at Cannes, Berlin, and Venice, and are representative of the “New German Film Movement” of the 1970s. In the 1970s, Wenders was inspired by American road movies of the time, and he also loved Western movies in his youth. He began to film his own European-style road movies. His famous films include Paris, Texas, The American Friend, Wings of Desire, and Until the End of the World.
