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.
