Sundance Selects is acquiring the domestic rights to "Pina," director Wim Wenders' 3D documentary about dancer and choreographer Pina Bausch.

Wenders ("Wings of Desire," "Buena Vista Social Club") also wrote the screenplay and, with Gian-Piero Ringel ("Palermo Shooting," "Orly"), produced the movie.

In its first four weeks in Germany, the movie grossed more than $4 million. It is set to premiere in France on April 6 and the U.K. April 12.

HanWay Films licensed the movie in more than 40 international territories.
