THE GIRL DOWN LOCH ANZI

 

Director: Alice Schmid

Germany

87 Min.

12-year-old Laura grows up in a farming family on a remote farm in the Swiss mountains between the cities of Bern and Lucerne. She writes down her dreams and fears in her secret computer diary. Many of her fantasies are centred around Loch Änzi, a deep rocky abyss shrouded in mystery where even the grown-ups don't dare to go. When a boy from the city comes to visit and do "countryside service", Laura gradually overcomes her fears and isolation.
