Theater club

5 films by the great Wim Wenders this weekend at the Doc Club & Pub

Fans of Wim Wenders, or any movie buff who misses the theatrical experience, this weekend is your chance.

Bangkok’s new independent cinema, Doc Club & Pub, will screen five films by German filmmaker and playwright Wim Wenders this weekend. The selections spotlight his classic road trip Paris, Texas, highly acclaimed dark romantic fantasy wings of desire, and its sequel, Far so close!

The other two films are documentaries. In Tokyo Ga (1985), Wenders turns his first trip to Japan into a tribute to filmmaker Yasujiro Ozu and an exploration of Japanese modernity. For the Buena Vista Social Club (1999), it chronicles the trip of a longtime friend and renowned guitarist to Cuba to create an album. It was nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the 2000 Oscars.

The weekend also sees an additional film not from Wenders but from collaborator and cameraman Robby Muller called Robby Muller: living the light.

All films are shown on Saturday and Sunday at Doc Club & Pub. Tickets cost THB 150 and can be booked online. The independent cinema has just opened on the second floor of the Woof Pack building on Soi Sala Daeng 1.
