“Wanted: Ladies and Gentlemen over 65”. So begins an ad placed in a local German paper by renowned choreographer Pina Bausch. Rarely screened in the U.S., this charming documentary follows a group of seniors as they learn to perform modern dance. Uplifting and candid, we watch non-professionals as they struggle with the rigors of training, reflect on the realities of aging, and courageously take on new challenges in their elder years. Winner of the German Film Critics award for “Best Documentary” in 2004.
