Ammon News - The Embassy of Switzerland, in collaboration with the Royal Film Commission is screening six short Swiss films in the context of this year’s Francophonie celebrations.

On 8 March 2023, the screening of the Swiss short films will take the attendees on a diverse and animated journey that will start with the 6-minute film “Aatosaurus Rex” which confronts the impact of cars and transport pollution on the environment.

The second short film “Tente 113, Idomeni”, tells the story of a 19-year-old boy and his migration to Switzerland. The animation “Primitivo” teaches the viewers the secret behind the driving force of human evolution. “The Record” is set in a music shop where an old man works. The animation shows how his whole life changes the day he receives a vinyl from a stranger that reads his mind and plays his lost memories.

The fifth animation “Selfies” illustrates digital self-portraits in a creative and profound way and will be followed by “La Baleine” where a young man discovers a whale stranded on a beach. He drifts into a dream that takes him back in time where he relives moments with his beloved mother.

Switzerland is a proud full member of the International Organisation of La Francophonie since 1996, amongst 54 other countries. Democracy, peace and human rights, as well as the promotion of linguistic diversity and the support to sustainable economy, innovation and digitalization are Switzerland's main lines of action within the Francophonie.

Multilingualism is part of the Swiss DNA and contributes to Switzerland’s cultural diversity. French is one of Switzerland's four national languages. It is the second most spoken language of the country with nearly 2 million speakers, representing 23% of the Swiss population.

This event is free and open to the public. The short animations are in French with English subtitles. The screening will take place at the Rainbow Theatre at 7:00 p.m.
