Our films deal with topics from culture and history, society and science, nature and enjoyment.

We do not simply string facts together, but weave the stories together and create suspense with a dramaturgy familiar from feature films.
The animal painter Fritz Hug (1921-1989) was a highly talented and at his time very successful Zurich artist. His paintings of animals were revolutionary, they show the animal not only as a representative of its species, but also as an individual. It is high time to rediscover Fritz Hug. For his 100th birthday in 2021 we are producing a portrait of him.
