by Gabriel Baur Special Screenings

Irene Staub, alias Lady Shiva is wearing a see-through rain jacket, bright red lipstick and has ash blond curly hair. Standing in Zurich’s Schoffelgasse she is offering her services. The once conservative city has long left 1968 behind and a wide-range of new art forms and fashion extravaganzas have taken their hold of it. Even Lady Shiva, model and muse to internationally renowned artists such as Lou Reed, David Bowie and Federico Fellini, has a promising future to look forward to – until her glistening stardom suddenly evaporates. Using statements of friends and eyewitnesses, unique photos and previously unseen film footage director Gabriel Baur examines the life of one of Zurich’s true icons, who died in 1989. GLOW pays homage to a genuine Swiss diva.
