By Cyril Dion.
16-year-old Bella and Vipulan are part of a generation convinced its very future is in danger. Between climate change and the 6th mass extinction of wildlife, their world could well be inhabitable 50 years from now. They have sounded the alarm over and over, but nothing has really changed. So they’ve decided to tackle the root of the problem: our relationship with the living world. Over the course of an extraordinary journey, they come to realize just how deeply humans are tied to all other living species. And that by saving them… we’re also saving ourselves. Humans thought they could distance themselves from nature, but humans are part and parcel of nature. For man is, after all, an Animal.

Dad’s got a broken leg and a mood to match whilst Mum fusses over her two children and their pet dog.

As the journey twists and turns and their destination draws ever closer, the chaotic claustrophobia in the car grows as does the love and affection they have for each other. Accompanied by a brilliant soundtrack, Panah Panahi’s thrilling debut feature is a treasure; tender, quirky, and laugh-out-loud funny. Get ready to take an unmissable journey along the dusty road of life.

By André Schäfer, with Martin Suter.
SYNOPSIS AVAILABLE IN GERMAN ONLY - Dieser Film ist kein klassisches Portrait, sondern ein Dokumentarfilm, der mittels Fiktion die Romane Martin Suters zum Leben erweckt und uns den Autoren hinter den Geschichten auf einer ganz neuen Ebene näherbringt. „Die Fantasie stimmt ja meistens mehr als die Realität“, sagt Suter. Er spaziert durch seine Geschichten, filmisch und ästhetisch eindrücklich inszeniert, beleuchtet seine Protagonist:innen und ihre Geheimnisse – und insbesondere auch seinen eigenen, privaten Kosmos: Eine Welt, die von Gegensätzen durchtränkt und von der Sucht nach Geschichten geprägt ist. „Schreiben hat viel mit weglassen zu tun“, sagt der Schweizer Bestsellerautor. Dieser Film zeigt uns alles über Martin Suter – alles, ausser die Wahrheit.
