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> peter zumthor + wim wenders = movie magic....

Work on the project will take several years to complete. A taste of the film will be available August at the Venice Biennale."</p></em><br /><br /><p> ok - the translation's mine (and my german suspect) but apparently wim wenders is doing a long term documentary on zumthor's work. the primary gist of the movie will be to document - fully - one of his projects from sketch to completion. this could either be brilliant or maddeningly overdone....</p> Wim Wenders Turns His Hand To Architecture Archinect 2012-02-27T19:30:00-05:00 >2012-07-08T11:21:40-04:00 <img src="" width="266" height="329" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>Wenders revealed his ambition to make a 3-D documentary about architecture. "I have actually already started a long-term project in 3D. It will take several years to do a film about architecture, and I have a lot of architect friends. I realised through Pina that architecture is something that could have a real affinity to film."</p></em><br /><br /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" ""> <html><head><meta></head></html>
