Adolf Muschg – der Andere

by Erich Schmid Special Screenings

Today, Adolf Muschg is one of the most important figures in Swiss literature. His start in life, however, was difficult: his father died early, his mother was depressed. He went through boarding school as a half-orphan and came to terms with the world as a young intellectual, before becoming a beacon of hope for the Swiss left. Director Erich Schmid's documentary portrait follows both Muschg’s career and the trail of his last novel "Heimkehr nach Fukushima", which leads to a contaminated Japan and a Zen monastery. Adolf Muschg’s personal commentary steers the audience through the film with humour and candour.
