This short film, however, will be a unique contribution to this year's Biennale only and has nothing to do whatsoever with Mr Wenders' intention to do a feature documentary on Mr Zumthor at a later point of time. It is certainly not a trailer for the feature documentary. These are two completely different projects with the Biennale short film being singularly exhibited at the Biennale and with no connection to a possible feature documentary. </em></p> http://archinect.com/news/article/53162939/peter-zumthor-wim-wenders-movie-magic peter zumthor + wim wenders = movie magic....
