Paris Texas at Glasgow Film Theatre

Paris Texas

31 July, 2022 at 6.30 pm

Screening with a new recorded interview with director Wim Wenders.

Paris, Texas is considered Wim Wenders’ best-known and internationally most successful film. Celebrated by critics, it won a series of important international awards, including the Palme d’Or at Cannes.

This unconventional road movie is based on a script by Pulitzer Prize-winner Sam Shepard and tells the story of Travis (Harry Dean Stanton), a man who wanders out of Mexico and into Texas one day. Travis does not speak a word and seems to have largely lost his memory. But he is driven by his wish to find his family again: his young wife Jane (Nastassja Kinski), whose life he seems to have placed in danger through his pathological jealousy, and his seven-year-old son Hunter (Hunter Carson).

With impressive performances from the cast, and a unique soundtrack by Ry Cooder, Paris, Texas became a cult favourite.
