Filmmaker Wim Wenders Explores the Memory of the Road in New Photography Exhibit

“The American people live on the road,” Paris, Texas actor Harry Dean Stanton has said regarding the making of the 1984 film. “The society is on the road.” The road has been a subject of director Wim Wenders’ ‘70s-era films: Alice in the Cities, The Wrong Move, and Kings of the Road. In Wenders’ work, the road is a conduit that allows us to span memory and time — and his players choose to embrace or evade the journey.
