New Trailer for the 4K Restoration of Wim Wenders’ Wings of Desire Released, Premiering at the Berlinale

The trailer is available on Vimeo, but due to its privacy settings, cannot be played in an embedded post.

Next Friday, the Berlinale will premiere the new 4K restoration of Wim Wenders’ 1987 film, Wings of Desire. Wenders will be in attendance at the screening on Friday.

From the Berlinale:

The film was shot on both black-and-white and colour stock. At the time, that required several additional steps in the lab in order to produce a final colour negative, which was several generations removed from the camera negatives. For the digital restoration, the original negative was scanned in 4K, retouched, and colour corrected. So the film can now be shown the way cinematographer Henri Alekan might have envisioned it. – World premiere of the restored version in 4K DCP.
