Overcoat-clad angels watch over a divided Berlin, omniscient but lonely, to bear witness to the city's mortal inhabitants without interceding. Developing feelings of tenderness toward a trapeze artist (Solveig Dommartin) and kinship with an American actor (Peter Falk), the angel Damiel (Bruno Ganz) surrenders his immortality to join the human world and share in its joys and woes. Alternating between black and white and color, Wim Wenders captures a city haunted by its past and poised on the verge of a new future.
Shown in conjunction with the film course Celluloid Cities II: International Cityscapes, this screening will be introduced by the course's instructor, Paul Wright, Ph.D.
