Two debut films – Going Private by Stina Werenfels and Drum Bun by Robert Ralston – will also be screened, along with Sabine Gisiger’s documentary Gambit and cult film Broken Silence by Wolfgang Panzer (1995).
On November 18, a forum on "the miracle of Swiss cinema" will be attended by directors Gisiger, Steiner and Ralston, as well as by Michael Sauter, who co-wrote My Name is Eugen and Grounding. Distributor Matthias Keuthen (Schwarz Weiss Filmverleih), who will release Fredi M. Murer’s Vitus [+see also:
