A Swiss rebel, Anne-Marie Schwarzenbach

Directed by Carole Bonstein

Synopsis :

Using archive material that are being made public for the first time, this film is the first to ever attempt to portray the life of Annemarie Schwarzenbach, scion of a wealthy Zurich industrial family that made no attempt to disguise its sympathies for the Nazi world order.

Author, journalist and news photographer, Annemarie Schwarzenbach rebelled against this environment.

Escaping from Switzerland and from reality, she travelled the world denouncing Europe’s fascist movements, and America’s exploitation of its workers.
