Storyboarding for Visions of Wim Wenders by Stéphane Lemardelé
Hardcover – Life Drawn by Humanoids – Feb 2023 – 155 pages
With this book, Stéphane Lemardelé traverses uncharted territory, linking the sequential art form with the often overlooked medium of a storyboarder—the two intrinsically tied but the former seen as an end in and of itself, and the latter a means to someone else’s end.
In this case, that “someone else” is legendary, cult-classic filmmaker Wim Wenders (Paris Texas, Wings of Desire), and the “end” is his 2015 film Everything Will Be Fine (starring Rachel McAdams and Charlotte Gainsbourg).
Through this graphic novel, Stéphane captures not only the formation of this film, but moments of artistic reflection from Wim himself: intimate interactions between the two where Wim ponders the trajectory of his career and evolution as an artist, and the meaning of film as a tool with which to examine our own humanity.
A collector’s item intended for fans of cinema and memoir, featuring actual storyboards from the production.
