Opening Program “Heidilicious”

Œstral

Camille Briffod, Schweiz 2021, 15’ (Ov/EN)

A sensory journey through the menstrual cycle.

Ilana, Nora, Begum, Anja and Una share with us their feelings and fascinations related to menstruation. Through a sensory exploration of this reality, both common and singular, the film plays with the boundaries of fiction and documentary.

Meat the Mistakes

Vixky Ramsay, Lea asché Kalfus, Schweiz 2021, 2’ (without dialogue)

Welcome to the universe of body acceptance. If you love your body then it will love you back and dance with you in the slipstream moon and during the day in the sunshine.

BodyNormShapes-Perfectly Imperfect

Outfits that deal with external body problems. Breaking out of discomfort. A call for acceptance and body love.

An expression about body shame in a new era. New way of seeing and being. Full body positivity, no shame for bodies. Why make problems out of us. We all have similar issues, let’s share them and say goodbye to it forever.

Being Sascha

Manuel Gübeli, Schweiz 2020, 35’ (German, Swiss-German, English/German)

Sascha’s name wasn’t always Sascha. But now it is. Sascha doesn’t identify as a man or as a woman, but as trans non-binary. A story about what it means to live in a society that wasn’t expecting you. A glimpse into a life that allows us to question our own categories. And a film about what it means to be oneself.

Dans la nature

Marcel Barelli, Schweiz 2021, 5’ (French/EN)

In nature, a couple is a male and a female. Well, not always! A couple is also a female and a female. Or a male and a male. You may not know it, but homosexuality isn’t just a human story.
