Ein Abriss der Geschichte einiger Schweizer Politikerinnen im 20. Jahrhundert.

Die Schweiz war eines der letzten Länder der Welt, das den Frauen Stimm- und Wahlrecht gewährte. Dieser Film bietet einen Überblick über ein Jahrhundert Schweizer Geschichte. Im Blickpunkt stehen die Frauen, die dafür gekämpft haben, ihre Küche zu verlassen – und diejenigen, die sich dorthin zurück zu verbannen suchten – bis hin zum Erreichen der Gleichstellung, wobei diese in Wirklichkeit bisweilen noch auf recht schwachen Füssen zu stehen scheint.

Der Film wird als 90′, aktualisierte Version mit aktuellen Politikerinnen wie Sarah Akanji, Tamara Funicello und Marina Carobbio Guscetti zur Verfügung stehen.

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.

Cows on the Roof

Cows on the Roof

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.

Sie sind guter Dinge, finanziell unabhängig und leisten sich nochmals alles, was das Herz begehrt. Doch auch der endlose Luxus verdeckt nicht, dass hier aus dem Altern ein Business gemacht wird. Der Film begleitet die Damen und Herren in ihrem pompösen Lebensabend und das Personal in seiner Arbeitswelt ohne je die Absurditäten ins Lächerliche zu ziehen.

Manchmal ist die Schweiz eben doch eine Insel: mitten im chilenischen Archipel liegt die kleine Robinson Crusoe Insel, mit Internetverbindung, Fernsehen und sogar ein paar wenigen Fahrzeugen für die 600 Insulaner. Alle sind sie Nachkommen eines Berner Aristokraten. Der Grossteil der Bevölkerung lebt vom Langustenfang und vom Tourismus. Die Insulaner lieben ihre unwirtliche und von Stürmen umtoste Insel, sind stolz auf ihre helvetische Abstammung und halten seit Generationen an der Schweizer Kultur fest, die Alfred von Rodt 1877 als erster helvetischer Kolonialherr mitbrachte. Als Sündenbock des Berner Adels brach er mit seiner Familie, eroberte als Söldner ferne Welten und gründet sein eigenes kleines Königreich – die Robinson Crusoe Insel.

INSULANER ist eine sanfte Hymne der Eroberung mit Pedro Lenz’ Erzählstimme, die schmunzelnd auf uns Schweizer blickt – von ganz weit her.
