Pina is a 2011 German 3D documentary film about the contemporary dance choreographer Pina Bausch. It was directed by Wim Wenders. The film premiered Out of Competition at the 61st Berlin International Film Festival.
During the preparation of the documentary, Pina Bausch died unexpectedly. Wenders cancelled the film production, but the other dancers of Tanztheater Wuppertal convinced him to make the film anyway. It showcases these dancers, who talk about Pina and perform some of her best-known pieces inside the Tanztheater Wuppertal and in various outdoor locations around the city of Wuppertal.
Pina was selected as the German entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 84th Academy Awards; as well as being submitted for Best Documentary Feature. On 18 November 2011, the film was named as one of the 15 shortlisted entries for Best Documentary Feature. On 18 January 2012, the film was also named as one of the nine shortlisted entries for Best Foreign Language Film. On 24 January 2012 it was finally nominated for an Best Documentary Feature, but failed to be nominated in the Best Foreign Language Film Category. Had the film received Oscar nominations in both fields, it would have been the first film ever to do so.
