Vancouver's Swiss contingent
by Mathieu Loewer
After an outing at Toronto earlier this month, Swiss cinema is returning to Canadian soil once again for the 26th Vancouver International Film Festival (September 27-October 12).
Three Swiss titles will screen at the festival: Oliver Paulus and Stefan Hillebrand’s feature So Long, My Heart! [+see also:
film profile] (Motorfilm) and documentaries Echoes of Home by Stefan Schwietert (Maximage) and Benoît Rossel’s Le théâtre des opérations (PCT cinéma-télévision).
Three Swiss minority co-productions have been selected. Italian helmer Gianni Amelio will present The Missing Star [+see also:
film profile] (Carac Film), while two films by German directors – Maria Speth’s Madonnas (Cineworx) and Hartmut Bitomsky’s Dust (Dschoint Ventschr) – will also screen.
