Directed by Chantal Akerman

An encounter between two of the most remarkable female artists of the 20th century, One Day Pina Asked… is a look by director Chantal Akerman at the work of choreographer Pina Bausch and her Wuppertal, Germany–based dance company. Capturing the company’s striking dances and elaborate stagings over a five-week European tour, Akerman takes us inside their process. The dancers describe the development of various dances, and the way in which Bausch calls upon them to supply autobiographical details around which the performances were frequently built.
