Lightning Over Water [Nick's Film]

Berlin: Road Movies Filmproduktion, 1980. Vintage oversize borderless reference color photograph from the 1980 film. With holograph ink annotations to the verso noting the film's title.

An image and a film that was "meta" before the term was coined, let alone culturally over-saturated. Wim Wenders joins his friend and hero, director Nicholas Ray, in New York City to discuss Ray's dying wish to make a film about a painter with a terminal illness who sails to China to find a cure. A secret classic, and a loving tribute from one filmmaker to another.

Shot in New York City and Poughkeepsie, NY.

12 x 10 inches. Near Fine.
