ALICE IN THE CITIES
Thursday, May 16
(1974) “A photo-journalist travels across the United States on an abortive assignment, and finds himself returning to Germany (via Amsterdam) encumbered by an independent-minded nine-year-old girl. Wenders approaches his subject with telling obliqueness, taking it – and us – continually by surprise, allowing his themes to surface gracefully from the tale, documenting and questioning the seductive overlay of American culture. – Verina Glaessner, Time Out. DCP. Approx. 110 min.
Part of Wim Wenders’ Road Trilogy.
