A watchmaking factory, standing in as a metaphor for capitalism’s stranglehold over time and people’s lives, is the specific mechanism jammed by the growing tide of anarchism in the valley of Saint-Imier in the late 19th Century. This project from the talented Cyril Schäublin, who we discovered at Locarno with his first film Dene wos guet geit (Those Who Are Fine), involves historical reenactments and scenes with numerous extras, but has had to put off shooting until 2021.

The first film by Chantal Akerman I ever saw was “News From Home” (1977), which connects streetscapes in New York City with letters from her mother. After watching “No home movie” (2015) in Locarno in 2015, to me, these two films mysteriously connected with each other. But to be honest, all of her films speak to me. Somehow, they go to a place beyond words, a place where things and meanings turn into something really interesting. Like in her silent short film “La chambre” (1972). I hope you get a chance to see it, too.
