ROAD MOVIES was established in 1976 by Wim Wenders in Berlin. The company has been producing over 100 arthouse films, such as PARIS, TEXAS, WINGS OF DESIRE, DON’T COME KNOCKING or PALERMO SHOOTING. Documentary films have always been the company’s other focus with award-winning productions like PINA, POPE FRANCIS – A MAN OF HIS WORD, and most recently A BLACK JESUS. We currently have several projects in development and pre-production: both fictional films as well as feature documentaries. We are also developing projects of documentary and fictional series. With a history of altogether four feature-length films in 3D and several short films, Road Movies has been recognized as a leading force in the field.
ROAD MOVIES is managed by Wim Wenders, who is supported by Karsten Brünig (Head of Production), Léa Germanin (Producer/ Head of Development), Susann Knießner (Junior Producer), Keiko Olivia Tominaga (personal assistant to Wim Wenders), Sophia Schaefer (Production Assistant) and Andreas Pautsch (Financial Accountant). In 2021, Road Movies will welcome long time collaborators Hella Wenders and Luca Lucchesi as shareholders and producers in the company.
Road Movies is located in Berlin Mitte, on Saarbrücker Str. 24, inside the building complex of the old “Königstadt brewery”. It shares its office space with the “Wenders Images” (the photo studio by Wim and Donata Wenders) and the “Wim Wenders Stiftung”, a foundation which has its headquarters in Düsseldorf, but some of the administration and most of the restoration and digitalization of Wim Wenders’ cinematic work takes place in Berlin.
