Thomas Imbach, Switzerland, 2020
with Milan Peschel c7.0

The film explores the destruction of a unique train station in Zurich and the construction of the new prison and police centre in its place. From the perspective of the filmmaker’s window, and with testimony from prisoners awaiting deportation, the film probes how we deal with the extinction of history and its replacement with total security.

Aaron Sorkin, 2017 c7.4

The true story of former ski racer Molly Bloom, who during the financial crisis set up exclusive multi-million-dollar poker games in hotel suites in Los Angeles and New York, where movie and sports stars met business giants and men of dubious wealth. When members of the Russian mafia infiltrated the games, Bloom was targeted by the FBI and charged with money laundering and tax evasion.

Peter Liechti, 2003 c7.5

The story of a man who sets out to get rid of his habit of smoking. Thus he plans to walk from Zurich, his present residence, “back” to his native town of St. Gallen, where he started to smoke a long time ago. The search for the source of his addiction becomes more and more an actual search for his home, an attempt to re-establish the connection with his own origins. The landscapes, encounters and recollections that he passes through on his strange journey finally coalesce into a searing portrait of his fatherland. Lucky Jack is a reckoning and a declaration of love. A road movie for pedestrians, a film in regional setting for homeless people.
