AFS Presents: Wim Wenders’ THE GOALIE’S ANXIETY AT THE PENALTY KICK

January 3, 2016 @ 4:00 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/Austria, 1972, DCP, 101 min
In German with English Subtitles

Adapted from the Austrian novella by Peter Handke, Wim Wenders begins his cinematic career with this contemplative, pseudo-detective film that explores the monotony of existence. Tonally and visually inspired by Alfred Hitchcock, the film follows a goalkeeper ejected from his soccer match who ends up wandering the streets of Vienna and commits an absurd, meaningless murder. Newly restored, THE GOALIEā€™S ANXIETY AT THE PENALTY KICK takes an honest, straightforward look at the moral disintegration of its main character.
