The in-between world

They are actually dead; yet they cannot let go of the living. These lost souls draw attention to themselves with strange signs that hardly anyone knows how to interpret. A simple woman from the Emmental (Switzerland) tells of her guests, who are caught in the in-between world between life and death. And how she helps them to come to eternal rest.

The in-between world is a film from the factual series “Mysterious Switzerland”, produced by Swiss television SRF, directed by Juerg Neuenschwander.

ZONES

A work by Juerg Neuenschwander, a percent-for-art project for the entrance hall of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).

ZONES is a four-channel, interactive video-art installation.
Each time a visitor engages with the touchscreen, he or she initiates four uniquely composed image sequences that materialise on individual screens. The ever-changing visual connections created in this way continuously open up new and surprising windows on the world.

Rasheda – keine Zeit für einen Schwatz

Most of the population of rural Bangladesh is made up of landless families on daily wages, who earn barely enough to survive. A development project targets very poor families by providing social microcredits to create the basis of sustainable economic independence for such households.Taking the example of the formerly landless Rashida Begum, the film presents the story of a family which has succeeded in crossing the threshold of poverty by sheer hard work. With immense effort, with great courage and persistence, Rashida rebelled against the fate of the landless. The film kicks off with the first big deal that Rashida could make with a government office. She can sell at once 5000 young trees to this office. Now she is supervising – with her youngest daughter in her arms – the loading of the saplings. Rashida shears off the traditional female role and builds her own tree nursery with her husband and her children.
