Film on witch hunting
In this project I want to talk about the issue of witch-hunting that started in Switzerland in the 16th and 17th century, putting it into a contemporary context. Ernen, the village where I plan to shoot the film, was a place of real importance for the witch-hunt in Switzerland. Indeed, it is here that many trials took place. I would like to integrate historical elements of this persecution into the story.
My project is special because ...
It is a project directed by a Swiss-Italian director, with a French-speaking team, Swiss-German actors and an Italian actress! Thus, the film also intends to highlight the linguistic diversity of Switzerland.
This is what I need backing for
This project is the first study film I have made on my own as a director. The organization takes a lot of time and energy. I would like to be able to pay for the film crew’s travel and food and the sets.
