The Girl Down Loch Änzi

Worldpremiere: IDFA Amsterdam, November 2016 // Swisspremiere: Januar 2017, Release date cinema Switzerland: February 2017

The pivotal summer for 12-year-old Laura, who lives in a beautiful remote area in the Swiss mountains. With just her taciturn family and animals around her, she becomes obsessed with the legends about a deep chasm in the area where no one dares to go. When a boy from town arrives to work on the farm she finally has a friend to share her fears and fantasies with. After he has left she takes the courage to explore the mysterious place all by herself. A portrait of an undervalued girl in an isolated world, filmed in a close unsentimental way.
