Inventing peace : a dialogue on perception by Wim Wenders( )

16 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 880 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inventing Peace' revolves around the question of how we look at the world, but do not see it when there is so much war, injustice, suffering and violence. What are the ethical and moral consequences of looking, but not seeing, and, most of all, what has become of the notion of peace in all this? In the form of a written dialogue, Wim Wenders and Mary Zournazi consider this question as one of the fundamental issues of our times as well as the need to reinvent a visual and moral language for peace. Inspired by various cinematic, philosophical, literary and artistic examples, Wenders and Zournazi reflect on the need for a change of perception in the everyday as well as in the creation of images. In its unique style and method, 'Inventing Peace' demonstrates an approach to peace through sacred, ethical and spiritual means, to provide an alternative to the inhumanity of war and violence

Der amerikanische Freund = American friend( Visual )

35 editions published between 1977 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film is a result of Wender's enthusiasm for Patricia Highsmith's novels and also of his fascination with America which preoccupied him until his return to Berlin to make Wings of Desire. The plot, concerning forgery rackets, remains subsidiary to mood. Amidst moving trains and changing landscapes the new world of the American gangster invades the Germany of the dying artisan Ganz. Wenders said that he equates American film directors with gangsters and here cast directors Hopper, Nick Ray and Sam Fuller as the art racketeers
