Question: "Is cinema a language about to get lost, an art about to die?"

During the 1982 Cannes Film Festival, Wim Wenders invited a group of filmmakers to discuss the future of film in front of a video camera, in an empty hotel room. The fifteen directors who responded to the invitation present a fascinating document of attitudes towards cinema at a moment when the medium's power was seen to decline.
