Director's Biography:

Wim Wenders

Wim Wenders (born 1945) came to international prominence as one of the pioneers of German Cinema during the 1970’s and is now considered one of the most important figures in contemporary film. In addition to his many prize-winning feature films, his work as a scriptwriter, director, producer, photographer and author also encompasses an abundance of innovative documentary films. He has directed multiple award winning films, prominently – The American Friend (1977), Paris, Texas (1984), Wings of Desire (1987) and genre bending documentaries like Buena Vista Social Club (1999), PINA (2011), and The Salt of The Earth (2014). He is regarded as one of the masters in modern cinema.


Hirayama seems utterly content with his simple life as a cleaner of toilets in Tokyo. Outside of his very structured everyday routine he enjoys his passion for music and for books. And he loves trees and takes photos of them. A series of unexpected encounters gradually reveal more of his past. A deeply moving and poetic reflection on finding beauty in the everyday world around us.
