During the '35th Cannes International Film Festival' (14th-26th May 1982), German director Wim Wenders asked a sample of 15 other international film directors to get, each one at a time, into the same hotel room to answer in solitude the same question about the future of cinema, while they were filmed with a 16mm camera and recorded with a Nagra sound recorder.
Location: Cannes, room 666 at the Hotel Martinez.
Godard, Fassbinder, Spielberg and other famous directors answer the question: "Is cinema a language about to get lost, an art about to die?"
At the beginning it was the idea of building a small arts library. Then, little by little, the commitment to share it.
Choice, preference, ignorance, evidence, all assumed. A desire to discover, an encouragement to remember. Sometimes.
