German director Wim Wenders had to postpone work on his new film "Peace By Peace" due to the war in Gaza. The director revealed this in an interview with The Guardian.

Wenders had been developing the fictional project for the past five years, which he describes as "a science-fiction utopian film." It takes place in Palestine. "I cannot do it any more. Right now, I have to rewrite it because the whole thing I wanted to base it on is bombed to pieces. Palestine might not even exist any more. It is going to be a wasteland," said Wenders.

According to the official synipsus of the project by the production company Road Movies, Wenders' new film is a giant kaleidoscope composed of many short films or episodes. "Peace by Peace will show surprising aspects of peace around the world, around history, and (wo)mankind. Each vignette will tell an unusual story of peace using various genres: documentary, science fiction, drama, comedy, and animation," the description says.

Two films by Wim Wenders hit the screens last year. The feature film "Perfect Days" premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, where it competed for the Palme d'Or and won the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury and the Best Actor Award for Kōji Yakusho. It was nominated as the Japanese entry for the Best International Feature Film at the 96th Academy Awards. Wenders' 3D documentary "Anselm," about German painter and sculptor Anselm Kiefer, was shown at Cannes as a special screening.
