MoMA to Honor Wim Wenders With Huge Career Retrospective

The legendary German director will receive the awesomely-titled Honorary Golden Bear.

Over the last forty years, Wim Wenders has quietly become a leader of independent and foreign cinema, mostly banking on his really rad name (and also art house classics like Paris, Texas and Wings of Desire) to enlighten audiences and bridge cultural divides.

On the heels of his latest release, the Oscar-nominated documentary about photographer Sebastião Salgado called The Salt of the Earth, MoMA has announced a major retrospective celebrating his complete body of work.

The exhibition will take place from March 2–17, and will feature twenty feature films—many of which being shown for the first time in ages—as well as select appearances by the director himself to introduce various projects.

Get your tweed jacket ready, and head over to MoMA’s site for more information.
