Hassler - nos Images

This documentary film about Jürg Hassler not only recounts the biography of a fascinating multitalent, it also reveals a chapter in the history of Swiss film previously unknown to the majority of viewers.

Hovering between documentary and fiction, the film confronts the viewer with Hassler’s unconventional approach to life as a photographic reporter, agitator, film maker, night club dancer, sculptor, author and architect – activities which he continues to pursue to an extent even today at the age of 73.
