Wings of Desire
dir. Wim Wenders, Germany, 1987, 35mm, 127 mins, color and b/w, English, French and German w/ English subtitles
Wings of Desire is one of cinema’s loveliest city symphonies. Bruno Ganz is Damiel, an angel perched atop buildings high over Berlin, can hear the thoughts of the people living below. When he falls in love with a beautiful trapeze artist, he gives up his immortality and returns to earth to be with her. Made not long before the fall of the Berlin Wall, this stunning tapestry of sounds and images, shot in black and white and color by the legendary Henri Alekan, is movie poetry. And it forever made Wim Wenders synonymous with film art.
Eurocircle’s has partnered with International House Philadelphia, to bring you a unique opportunity enjoy a glass of wine in the theatre while screening an international film. Join Eurocircle’s Monika Sienkowska and Sherry Kumar for an intimate wine reception at 6pm, where we will meet Eurocircle’s new film host Monika Sienkowska and other new Eurocircle members. The reception will be followed by the screening of the German movie Wings of Desire, and then we invite you to the Eurocircle & IHP after party at Mid- Atlantic Restaurant.
