German-Language Documentary Film Competition: Enthralling Portraits16. September 2012
In APPASSIONATA, Swiss filmmaker Christian Labhart accompanies the concert pianist Alena Cherny on a journey into her Ukrainian past. Grief, love, enthusiasm and passion – a fascinating portrait of a strong woman. PAUL BOWELS: THE CAGE DOOR IS ALWAYS OPEN takes us into the world of glamorous artists and deep into the musical culture of Morocco. The latest film by Zurich Master Class graduate Daniel Young is a little gem. MARK LOMBARDI – KUNST UND KONSPIRATION enriches us with the life and work of American artist Mark Lombardi – and casts a new light on 9/11. A portrait of a very different kind can be found in OUTING: What to do with a young man who outs himself as a danger to children. Thoughts are free – but where does guilt begin?
