People On Saturday (12+)

Switzerland, 2020, colour, 10 min.
Director: Jonas Ulrich
A sunny Saturday afternoon in Zurich. In the middle of a crowded square, a businessman is lying on a bench, seemingly asleep. Someplace else, a teenager is longing for appreciation. A commuter is fighting the ticket machine. The film shows ten tableaus of everyday situations in the city. The people in it are getting confronted with small or big problems; each one of them is a Sisyphos, endlessly rolling the little stones of daily life up the mountain.
