35mm print “[Wenders's] sensitive 1974 film about fading cultural identities. Long-faced Rüdiger Vogler, a Wenders favorite, is a German photojournalist in search of the Real America. While in New York, he reluctantly accepts responsibility for Alice, a nine-year-old German girl abandoned by her mother. Together they return to Europe in search of the girl’s grandmother, remembered, dimly, as living in a small village. Which one, they don’t know. Without a place to stop, the characters continue to move—restlessly, desperately, the end point always out of sight.” – Dave Kehr
