Directed by Wim Wenders

West Germany, France, United States 1982 17 mins.

Reverse Angle was my first diary film. It is about “new wave music” (among others Jim Jarmusch’s Del Byzanteens), about straying in New York, about the editing process of Hammett in the presence of Francis Ford Coppola, about a novel by Emanuel Bove and about Edward Hopper. And, somehow, the whole thing was a reflection about filmmaking in Europe and America.”—Wim Wenders.
