Our friends at the Museum of Fine Arts would like to invite you to the screening of Wim Wenders’ “road trilogy,” or more formally, “Wim Wenders: Portraits Along the Road.” This international celebration of German filmmaker Wim Wenders, features new digital restorations. First earning an international reputation as a cofounder of the New German Cinema movement in the 1970s, Wenders has since created award-winning features and documentaries. His classic Road Trilogy screens in February. Check out the trailer for Portraits Along the Road: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8jRHI5l41tY&feature=youtu.be
