A series of new documentary works by Swiss filmmakers on the country's contemporary artists is presented in association with the Embassy of Switzerland.
Renowned Swiss video artist Pipilotti Rist—known for her colorful, cheery, and earthy work about gender and the human body—is seen here in her Zurich studio as well as at a Museum of Modern Art exhibition. For the first time, she has permitted a documentary filmmaker to record her creative process. (Michael Hegglin, 2009, DigiBeta, German with subtitles, 52 minutes)
