Above: The documentary "Pina" is up for a Best Documentary Oscar on Sunday.

San Diego doesn't often play host to Oscar-nominated directors so it is a real treat to have the opportunity to interview Wim Wenders.

On Thursday, Wenders hosted a Q&A at the United Artists Horton Plaza Theaters for a near sold out crowd of appreciative movie fans. The director, who looks very much like a slightly disheveled professor, also stopped by the KPBS studios to speak with me about his Oscar-nominated documentary "Pina" that was shot in 3D.
