Wings of Desire
Pendle Social Cinema presents Wim Wenders’ classic acclaimed film.
Two angels, Damiel (Bruno Ganz) and Cassiel (Otto Sander), glide through the streets of Berlin, observing the bustling population, providing invisible rays of hope to the distressed but never interacting with them. When Damiel falls in love with lonely trapeze artist Marion (Solveig Dommartin), the angel longs to experience life in the physical world, and finds–with some words of wisdom from actor Peter Falk (playing himself) — that it might be possible for him to take human form.
This month’s film choice is inspired by an architecture theme. In-Situ are working with Manchester School of Architecture for the 4th year and this year the focus of attention is the Brierfield Gasometer – the decommissioned gas tower at Northlight.
Wings of Desire (1987) is listed in the top 10 architecture inspired films of all time and is beautufully set against the backdrop of a transitional Berlin.
As we make more of the social element, now that we’re in our new permanent home at The Garage, we will be serving food and refreshments before the film – come along from 6PM. Students from Manchester School of Architecture will also be joining us to discuss ideas about the Gasometer and what its future life could be.
The film screening will start at 7.30PM
