Wim Wenders – Places, strange and quiet

Open Air Screen

“When I look at a map, the names of mountains, villages, rivers, lakes or landscape formations excite me, as long as I don’t know them and have never been there,” says Wenders. “I seem to have sharpened my sense of place for things that are out of place.

“Everybody turns right, because that’s where it’s interesting, I turn left where there is nothing! And sure enough, I soon stand in front of my sort of place. I don’t know, it must be some sort of inbuilt radar that often directs me to places that are strangely quiet, or quietly strange”.
