NEEDLE PARK BABY - In Cinemas 16. January 2020

A film by Pierre Monnard, screenplay by André Küttel. Inspired by the Bestseller 'PLATZSPITZBABY' by Michelle Halbheer and Franziska K. Mülller.

 

Spring 1995: After the closure of the infamous needle park and the open drug scene in Zurich, eleven-year-old Mia and her mother Sandrine move to an idyllic little town outside Zurich. However, the new home is no paradise for Mia, because Sandrine is heavily addicted to drugs and should never have obtained custody. Mia takes refuge in her fantasy world with an imaginary friend. She talks to him during lonely hours and they make fabulous plans for an island life with her mother, far away from drugs. Mia also finds a kind of substitute family in a kids gang whose members come from similarly tough backgrounds. More and more Mia builds up the strength to rebel against her mother, and finally succeeds in leaving her.

Principal Photography of feature film PLATZSPITZBABY has begun

​On Monday, April 22nd of 2019, the shooting of our new film NEEDLE PARK BABY began. The film is inspired by the Swiss bestselling novel PLATZSPITZBABY by Michelle Halbheer and Franziska K. Müller, published in 2013 by Wörterseh-Veralg, which touched the hearts of over 40'000 Swiss readers. 

Sarah Spale, best known for the leading role in the successful SRF-Series WILDER and her appearance in NIGHTTRAIN TO LISBON, is taking on the challenging role of a drug addicted mother. The leading role of her 11-year-old daughter Mia is played by newcomer Luna Mwezi. The film is directed by Pierre Monnard and written by André Küttel.

ZWINGLI also stunnes french speaking audiences since March 27th

​ZWINGLI isn't preaching in only one language of the people anymore: Since the french version opened on the big screen in the french speaking regions of Switzerland, "LE RÉFORMATEUR" counts almost 240'000 spectators in Switzerland since its opening weekend 11 weeks ago.   

ZWINGLI Still #1 in Swiss German Cinemas!

We are very proud to inform you that ZWINGLI is still on top of the charts after its second weekend on the big screen. After a fabulous opening weekend of 28'279 viewers it could increase numbers by 14% this week, making it a fantastic 32'162 spectators. Therefore ZWINGLI managed to defend its #1 spot in Swiss german theaters against strong newcomers such as CREED II or THE FAVOURITE. 

We think it is also due to a strong word of mouth that our film was able to generate over 82'000 viewers in total. So far!
