This movie screening is a part of a program of Panorama Europe film festival of new european films. Known as Disappearing Act for its first five years, the newly re-named festival continues the mission of showcasing vital European filmmaking as distribution remains challenging for foreign language films in the United States. Panorama Europe gives New York audiences access to what may be their only chance to see these acclaimed films from the festival circuit on the big screen or at all. This year’s festival will take place at Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria and at the Bohemian National Hall in Manhattan. It was programmed by David Schwartz, Chief Curator at Museum of the Moving Image.

Presented by the Consulate General of Switzerland 

Switzerland. Dir. Marcel Gisler. 2013, 106 mins. Digital projection. New York premiere. With Sibylle Brunner, Fabian Krüger, Judith Hoffmann. A sad sack, 40-something gay novelist moves back to his rural Swiss hometown to care for his ailing, alcoholic mother, dredging up their complicated emotional history in this bittersweet, dryly humorous family drama. Nominated for six Swiss Film Awards and boasting a rollicking performance by Sibylle Brunner as the saucy, strong-willed matriarch, Rosie offers penetrating observations on messy family dynamics, as well as contemporary gay relationships.

Tickets: $12 public / free for Museum members. Order online or call 718 777 6800 to reserve tickets. For more information on membership and to join online, visit our membership page.
