Kings of the road: Rüdiger Vogler, Hanns Zischler, Lisa Kreuzer

"In the 1970s, Wim Wenders was among the first true international breakthrough artists of the revolutionary New Germain Cinema movement, a filmmaker whose fascination with the physical landscapes and emotional contours of the open road proved to be universal. In the middle of that decade, Wenders embarked on a three-film journey that took him from the wide roads of Germany to the endless highways of the United States and back again. Each starring Rüdiger Vogler as the director's alter ego, Alice in the cities, Wrong move, and Kings of the road are dramas of emotional transformation that folow their characters' searches for themselves, all rendered with uncommon soulfulness and visual poetry."--Container
