3-D: What was strictly once the province of cheesy gimmicks and gross-out horror effects proves here to be a tool of discernment and considerable strength. Its effect in Pina is simultaneously discreet and fairly profound. Instead of suddenly ejecting body parts and other miscellanea into a darkened auditorium, in the hands of director Wim Wenders and colleagues including stereographer Alain Derobe, Françoise Garnier and Erwin Schmidt, the 3-D photography in Pina subtly moves us, as viewers, into the world where the performance occurs. The sense of physical proximity above is not only restored—when cameras place us only several feet away from these dancers, in performance footage and beautiful and uncanny one-on-one encounters, the effect of such intimacy is magnified.
