Another ZFF competition film celebrates its release

04. April 2013

Daniel Young’s film PAUL BOWLES: THE CAGE DOOR IS ALWAYS OPEN will be released in Swiss cinemas on Thursday April 4, 2013. The film celebrated it’s world premiere as part of the Zurich Film Festival’s German-Language Documentary Film Competition, and has since enjoyed screenings at the Mostra de Cinema de Sao Paulo and the Berlinale (Panorama section).


Set amongst the beatniks and hippies with New York and Morocco as its backdrop, former Zurich Master Class participant Daniel Young’s first feature length documentary film celebrates the life of the equally daring and visionary American cult author Paul Bowles. Produced by Valentin Greutert, the film is released in Swiss theaters by Look Now! distributors. The ZFF is delighted that a further competition entry in the shape of PAUL BOWLES has made its way into cinemas. A film not to be missed!
