The news here isn’t so much that the film has found distribution, it’s that it’s taken this long to do so.

After bowing to glowing reviews at this year’s Berlin Film Festival, Wim Wenders' 3D ode to iconic choreographer Pina Bausch, simply titled PINA, has finally found distribution here in the States, and it's quite a grab for a relatively young distributor.

THR has revealed that Sundance Selects has picked up the film, which plays with pieces from Bausch, like Vollmond and Kontakthof. The film has found quite a good deal of buzz following its premiere, but shockingly hadn’t found a home quite as quickly as one would have imagined.

The interesting thing here is that, with an April 22 release set, the film will likely play on VOD, likely not in the 3D format. From what I’ve heard, the 3D is ultimately quite important to the film, at least in a way, so it will be interesting to see how it plays in the 2D format.
