The Goalie's Anxiety at the Penalty Kick

When: Sat., Nov. 7 2015

One of the key leaders of the New German Cinema, director Wim Wenders has put together a remarkable resume over the course of a career that stretches back to the '60s. The guy has shot movies all over the world and filmed in exotic places such as Berlin, Lisbon, Los Angeles, Cuba, Moscow, Tokyo and Australian outback. With some help from Janus films, the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque pays tribute to the auteur this month in a series dubbed With Portraits Along the Road. The series launches today with a screening of the 1972 flick The Goalie's Anxiety at the Penalty Kick, a film about a goalkeeper who freezes during a penalty kick. A new 4K digital restoration of the film screens at 5 tonight and at 8:40 tomorrow night. Wenders' 1974 film, Alice in the Cities, also screens at 7 tonight and at 6:30 tomorrow night. Tickets to each movie are $9. (Niesel)
