A Swiss movie basks in the Opening Night limelight: the ZFF opens today with the world premiere screening of Bettina Oberli’s humorous drama MY WONDERFUL WANDA. Based on Max Frisch’s dictum “We called for workers and people came”, the film takes a critical look at Swiss society through the eyes of an immigrant woman. In addition to cast and crew, Federal Councillor Alain Berset, Mayor of Zurich Corine Mauch, and a stream of other guests from the fields of culture and politics are expected at the Opening Night. The film opens to the general public tomorrow (Friday).
