The woman who left to save psychoanalysis.

 

Not only is EMMA a story based on true events that focuses on major themes such as the role of women at the beginning of the 20th century and the breakthrough of psychoanalysis. But EMMA is also an intimate portrait of a woman who fearlessly faces her complex inner life and dares to go her very own way, questioning all role models.

100 million viewers worldwide and, thus, the most successful German film series of all time. These are the schoolgirl reports. And yet, nobody wants to admit to have seen them. MADE IN GERMANY tells the story of the beginnings of the German erotic industry in the 1970s and its fight against censorship in the best dramedy style. We follow Wolf C. Hartwig building up his business and his perfidious idea: the development of sex films disguised as reportage under the guise of sexual education.

BETTY BOSSI

 

Betty Bossi is still considered the "nation's cook". She first appeared in 1956 and quickly became a cult figure. She represented the perfect Swiss housewife, so to speak, and promptly received countless marriage proposals. Even today, many people in Switzerland believe that Betty Bossi exists. However, she was merely a fictitious marketing figure from the beginning.

CODEWORD RUBIKON

In 2020 the Swiss television SRF, ZDF and the "Washington Post" revealed that the CIA and the German Federal Intelligence Service (BND), through the Swiss front company CRYPTO AG, had been selling allegedly bug-proof crypto devices halfway around the world for decades. What nobody suspected: the Americans and the Germans were able to use them to decrypt all secret communications. The Swiss intelligence service also profited from this. And, as of recently, we know that the CIA owned a second company in Switzerland, OMNISEC. One of its clients was the major Swiss bank UBS. However, the Swiss government did not know about this when they negotiated with the USA about Nazi gold and the banking secrecy.

DIE MITTAGSFRAU

Helene chooses life. In order to live, she must abandon everything.

The film adaptation of THE BLIND SIDE OF THE HEART tells the gripping story of a love triangle involving Helene and two men. On one side there is cruel fate, ensuring that Helene and Carl, the love of her life, never really stand a chance; on the other side there is Helene herself, unable to give the devoted Wilhelm – and thus their child – a chance in life. When the heart goes blind, it cannot see. It has nothing to offer. Least of all love. Helene must abandon everything in order to make a new start possible for herself and her son.

September 1970. Four planes are simultaneously hijacked by Palestinian terrorists. One of them a Swissair. The aircrafts are forced to land in Africa and hundreds of hostages fear for their lives.

AMERICA ON TRIAL

 

Francis Lee Bailey is perhaps the most famous and, at the same time, most controversial lawyer in the USA.  He defended the "Boston Strangler", the doctor "Sam Sheppard" and the publisher-daughter Patty Hearst, among others. His most well known client, however, was certainly O.J. Simpson. He says of himself: "I have defended as many innocent defendants who were convicted as guilty, as guilty ones who were acquitted".

HALIFAX - 111

The drama 111 tells of the story of the tragic crash of Swissair 111 into the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Halifax, Nova Scotia, on September 2nd, 1998. The moment of the catastrophe is never shown, but is always subliminally perceptible. The film follows several fates affected by the tragedy and paints a bigger picture: the crash had a profound impact not only on those directly affected, but also on people in Switzerland and around the world. It changed the environment around Halifax forever.

 

111 is a tragic film, but one that celebrates life. This fateful crash changed so many different lives in an instant, uniting them through the shared grief and shock of this sudden, incomprehensible tragedy. But ultimately, the film highlights how such a loss changes our perspective on life and what is important. This is the story we want to tell.

STILLER

"I am not Stiller." It is this very first sentence with which Max Frisch begins his novel "Stiller" that is difficult to get out of the minds of his readers. We learn everything and at the same time nothing about the hero who will lead us through the rest of the story. Because the character makes it clear: he is not the Stiller we think he is, he has given himself a new name, a new history, a new nationality, a new identity.

 

The film version of this important novel by Max Frisch is a voyage of discovery into the depths of human identity: perhaps we will get to know this Stiller after all along the way, and with it, hopefully, a little bit of ourselves...
