Wim Wenders invites a group of filmmakers at the 1982 Cannes Film Festival – including Godard, Fassbinder, Herzog and Spielberg – to discuss cinema.

Documentary 1984 46 mins

Director: Wim Wenders


During the 1982 Cannes Film Festival, Wim Wenders invited a group of filmmakers to discuss the future of film in front of a video camera, in an empty hotel room. The fifteen directors who responded to the invitation present a fascinating document of attitudes towards cinema at a moment when the medium's power was seen to decline.

With filmmakers ranging from the King of Hollywood blockbusters to the European provocateurs, Wenders finds something for everybody to chew on. From the philosophical to the economic, from the despondent to the optimistic, cinema, television and the very nature of the image within society are discussed with rare frankness and an unerring eye for what the future holds.
