Oscar-nominated and Sundance winning Swiss director-producer Christian Frei plays both truth and dare, and is known for his attempts at weaving documentaries about different walks of life. His topics cover lovesickness in New York, extinct mammoth hunting in Siberia, the Taliban’s destruction of the largest Buddha statue, war photographer James Nachtwey, space tourism and more. Through investigating humanity’s ways of life in the extremes, Frei uncovers profound faces and forces of human nature. Frei was president of the Documentary Film Commission for the film section of the Swiss Federal Office of Culture, and is now president of the Swiss Film Academy.Screening Schedule
