Interview Philippo Meneghetti CNC
Der Weg VON DER KÜCHE INS PARLAMENT war für die Schweizer Frauen steinig und lang – vier Generationen mussten dafür kämpfen, dass das männliche Stimmvolk den Frauen das Recht auf politische Mitbestimmung gewährte. Mit Feingefühl und Humor zeichnet Stéphane Goëls Dokumentarfilm DE LA CUISINE AU PARLEMENT – EDITION 2021 diesen Weg nach.
Politikerinnen, Aktivistinnen und Expertinnen wie Elisabeth Kopp, Ruth Dreifuss, Tamara Funiciello, Marina Carobbio, Amélie Christinat, Marthe Gosteli, Gabrielle Nanchen, Patricia Schulz, Brigitte Studer und Simone Chapuis-Bischof beschreiben ihren Kampf für die egalitäre Sache. Im reichen Archivmaterial, in dem auch gewöhnliche Bürger*innen zu Wort kommen, spiegelt sich der Mentalitätswandel während eines Jahrhunderts.
Der Jubiläums-Kinofilm im Namen der Gleichberechtigung – ein vergnügter und tiefer Einblick im Kampf ums Frauenstimmrecht.

A tax haven in Switzerland, a half-hearted fight against tax evaders in Germany, a formerly wealthy African country that was led into the abyss by world market prices of raw materials: What at first glance seem to have nothing to do with each other stands for a global economic system that determines all our lives – and the filmmaker is right in the middle of it.

Between goats, cows and the Alps, Fabiano (38) becomes a father. But the idyll is deceptive: he tries hard to make the alpine cheese the way his drop-out parents did in the 70s. In addition to debts, feelings of guilt also gnaw at him. Last year, a Macedonian moonlighter had a fatal accident. Since then, his death has never let Fabiano go. How can he and his girlfriend Eva build a life together with their offspring under such difficult circumstances?
Set against the imposing and oppressively quiet backdrop of the Ticino Alps, Aldo Gugolz’s film turns out to be an exciting tightrope walk between a criminal case and a sensitive portrait of a young farmer.

“You’re too baked, sweetheart”, says Mads’ mother after greeting him with a kiss on the lips. In this family it is okay to bend the law, as long as you do it right. A twisted lesson the 17-year-old Ida is about to learn. Having recently lost her mother in a car accident, she has been taken in by her aunt and three cousins, whom she barely knows. Theirs is a loving home, but it soon transpires that the family, led by its caring but disciplinarian matriarch, engages in criminal activities. As boundaries keep on being pushed, Ida finds herself torn between her safety and the allure of her cousins’ ferocious behaviour. When the clan descends into conflict with the police, Ida has to decide what is more dear to her: the loyalty to her new family or her own life.
Featuring a superb central performance by newcomer Sandra Guldberg Kampp, Jeanette Nordahl’s fiercely intelligent debut is an arresting study of family and dysfunctionality, the nourishing and burdensome nature of love, and the complexity of desire. An impressive mix of remarkable camerawork, exquisite writing, and a visceral, electronic score. An intense film that runs deep.
