AFS Presents: Wim Wenders’ ALICE IN THE CITIES
January 10, 2016 @ 7:00 pm
Part of our Wim Wenders: Portraits of the Road series, an eleven-film retrospective running January through February at the Marchesa. More info and tickets here: https://austinfilm.org/wimwenders
Directed by Wim Wenders
West Germany, 1974, DCP, 110 min
In German with English Subtitles
Shot on gorgeous black and white 16mm, ALICE IN THE CITIES is the first film in Wenders’ “Road Movie Trilogy.” Though technically his fourth feature, Wenders himself considers it his first, since with it he discovered his essential theme: the road. Rüdiger Vogler (WRONG MOVE; KINGS OF THE ROAD) makes his first appearance as Phillip Winter, an aspiring journalist stuck with a stranger’s daughter named Alice. Tasked with finding her grandmother, the two venture through various German cities guided solely by Alice’s vague memories.
