    2010. Germany. Directed by Anne Linsel, Rainer Hoffmann. Screenplay by Linsel. Cinematography by Hoffmann. First Run Features. In 2007, 40 youngsters unfamiliar with choreographer Pina Bausch were recruited from high schools in Wuppertal to practice and eventually perform Bausch’s 1987 dance piece "Contact Zone," about various forms of human encounters. The documentary follows the selection of the students and the weekly Saturday rehearsal process led by Bausch dancers Jo-Ann Endicott and Benedicte Billet and supervised by Bausch. Bausch died on June 30, 2009, and her final interview is included in the film. In German; English subtitles. 90 min.
