Paris, Texas (1984)

Hoezo in KINO

Wenders and Müller set out to film Paris, Texas in chronological order, but without a precise plan. Both fascinated with Americana like diners, billboards, neon lighting and of course, the wide vistas of this massive country. All of this is present in the film, yet as a viewer you can almost feel the European perspective on all things American. Müller stated it was a challenge not to ‘show off’ with filming images of the wide, Texan landscapes because the shots he composed were to serve the story and feeling of the characters. And while that may be true, the movie is also known for the iconic images of these landscapes, Nastassja Kinski in a pink mohair sweater and of course, the one way mirror-scene between her and Harry Dean Stanton.

A man wanders out of the desert not knowing who he is. His brother finds him, and helps to pull his memory back of the life he led before he walked out on his family and disappeared four years earlier.

We’re proud to honor the groundbreaking Dutch visual artist and director of photography, Robby Müller with a film program and photo exhibition. For nearly four decades he collaborated with the greatest independent cinema auteurs and created their style in visual storytelling with his mastery in the use of natural light, composition, and framing. He preferred to travel to the film sets and along the way he religiously documented his journey, making light and composition studies through his (polaroid) photographs and videos. In collaboration with his wife Andrea Müller, we selected five polaroids from his private collection and we’re proud to exhibit these in our foyer.
