Last year was both a personal milestone for Wim Wenders—he celebrated his 70th birthday in 2015—and a year filled with new projects, critical acclaim, and renewed interest in his work. A film retrospective of his career at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in March was followed by a nomination at the Oscars for the stunning documentary Salt of the Earth, co-directed with Juliano Salgado. Film restoration work carried out by the Wenders Foundation was showcased in a touring selection of films, “Portraits along the Road,” curated by Janus Films and the IFC Center.
