About the Book

Wim Wenders' body of work is among the most formidable in modern cinema: Paris Texas, Wings of Desire, The Buena Vista Social Club, The Million Dollar Hotel. And Wenders writes about cinema as passionately as he produces it. This volume collects three previously published books of Wenders' essays: Emotion Pictures, The Logic of Images, and The Act of Seeing. In them, he discusses his development as a filmmaker from the moment he picked up a camera aged 12, and offers a broader analysis of his guiding passions - rock 'n' roll, avant-garde cinema, questions of German identity, and the influence of America.
