AFI Fest 2011, the Hollywood festival from the American Film Institute, will be including two docs in its Special Screenings selection next month: Werner Herzog’s Into the Abyss (pictured) and Wim Wenders’ Pina.
The 25th annual festival, held from November 3 through 10, will include the two docs amongst its line-up of feature films.
Herzog’s Into the Abyss, which investigates a triple homicide case in Conroe, Texas, will screen on November 6 and 7. Pina, a 3D dance film capturing the work of choreographer Pina Bausch and her dance company, will screen on November 5 and 7.
The news comes as Pina was today named a nominee for the European Film Academy’s Documentary 2011 – Prix Arte.
