EXHIBITION

REBEL VIDEO

Culturally, the 1980s were a particularly influential period in the last century. Music legends were born, clothing styles were shaped and, of course, this decade was also the era of the “video generation”.

Young people at the time were experimenting with the video technology developed in the early 1980s, which they used to create works of art and to raise their concerns. The new medium was ideally suited to reaching the public while remaining authentic. Suddenly it was possible to capture the dynamics of the street on video and bring eventful life into the living room.

The “Rebel Video. The video movement of the 70s and 80s” exhibition at the National Museum Zurich shows works from the earliest video makers, explores their careers and highlights their ideas and the impact on today’s culture and society. A moving exhibition has been created from moving images.

IN PRODUCTION

At the Philosophers' school
by Fernand Melgar

The first experiences for five mentally handicapped children entering school, who will have to learn how to get along with the others: an almost impossible task, as they seem to be closed to the outside world. But gradually, the class takes shape before our eyes as the students move towards and against everything, much to the amazement and delight of their parents. The adventure of a small group of children different from the others, who open themselves to life and to the world.

About heaven
by Stéphane Goël

If Switzerland is sometimes perceived as heaven on earth, the question that follows is: do its inhabitants believe in heaven? Believers, agnostics and atheists all feel the need for a narrative when confronting death. So, what is left of paradise, which once promised eternal happiness?

Encountering people in the twilight of their years, this film offers a moving, offbeat and personal quest within the depictions of this place common to all of humanity, faced with hope and shared doubt.

Forced Landing
by Daniel Wyss

In 2014, the Pentagon awarded P.O.W. medals to 143 WWII veterans, who were held in the infamous Wauwilermoos punishment camp in Switzerland. The story of these airmen and their prison unveils one of the darkest and less known facts of Switzerland’s behavior during World War II.

ON DVD

THE SHELTER
by Fernand Melgar

A winter spent in the heart of an emergency shelter for homeless people in Lausanne. At the entrance to this hidden bunker there unfolds every night the same dramatic ritual, leading to occasionally violent confrontations. The watchmen have the difficult task of “sorting the poor”: women and children first, men later if there is room. Even if the shelter can hold 100 people, only 50 “chosen ones” will be allowed inside to receive a hot meal and a bed. The others know that the night will be a long one.

Between wardens and detainees, relations of friendship and hate, respect and revolt are formed until the announcement of the deportment, which is experienced like a stab.
