Wim Wenders
West Germany, France, UK

Featuring some of the most iconic images of the American Southwest ever captured on film, Wim Wenders’ masterpiece stars the late Harry Dean Stanton as Travis, an amnesiac who, after going walkabout in the South Texas desert, begins a journey with his son to find Jane, Travis’ wife, who has long been missing.

Winning the Palme d’Or at the 1984 Cannes Film Festival, Paris, Texas remains a massively influential classic for its legendary performances, its human portrait of America, and a script by L. M. Kit Carson and Sam Shephard that redefined the road movie as a heartbreaking emotional voyage that dreams big and delivers even bigger.
