This chapter presents an interview with German filmmaker Wim Wenders. His most notable films include The Buena Vista Social Club (1999), a collaboration with regular cohort Ry Cooder. This documentary offered an intimate look at a group of veterans of the Cuban music scene. Pina (2011) offers a portrait of the influential choreographer Pina Bausch that explored the possibilities of the 3D format. Something of a polymath, Wenders has also written several books on cinema and numerous books of photography. His artwork has been exhibited worldwide. The present interview took place to mark a major retrospective at the BFI Southbank in 2010. It covered topics such as his thoughts, memories, and perceptions regarding some of his past filmmaking endeavors; recurrent themes in his films; and the role played by music in his work.
