Wings of Desire
The Fifth film of the inaugural season of the Underground Cinema’s “Must See Cinema” series is curated by Chuck Anziulewicz.
About December’s film: Wings of Desire (1987)
Two angels, Damiel (Bruno Ganz) and Cassiel (Otto Sander), glide through the streets of Berlin, observing the bustling population, providing invisible rays of hope to the distressed but never interacting with them. When Damiel falls in love with lonely trapeze artist Marion (Solveig Dommartin), the angel longs to experience life in the physical world, and finds–with some words of wisdom from actor Peter Falk (playing himself) — that it might be possible for him to take human form.
“Must See Cinema” brings Charleston film lovers from all walks of life together to talk about a movie that they have a strong connection to. Each month there is a new film and a new curator. Movies grab people in a lot of different ways, and our curators pick films they are passionate about. Whether it is because the film made them think about something differently, they think it is underrated, or they just think it is so great that it deserves a screening, each month’s curator will be passionate about that month’s film. The curated film will be shown on Thursday nights throughout the month.
The first Thursday of the month is a special night where the curator will be present and have a conversation about the movie with an interviewer as well as the audience. The audience will both get to see the movie and get the added value of hearing why the curator think it is special.
