For the Kino/19 - German Film Festival, Switzerland is invited as Guest Country and will present Chris the Swiss with two screenings.

Anja Kofmel already admired her cousin Chris as a little girl. His mysterious death in the midst of the wars in Yugoslavia in 1992 still keeps her occupied. Especially as the young Swiss journalist wore the uniform of an international mercenary group at the time of his death. What happened?  As an adult, Anja decides to follow his story. She tries to understand what Chris' actual involvement in this conflict was and takes us on a quest to Croatia. She tells of her journey in a fine mix of documentary and animated film. Chris the Swiss has been awarded several prizes, including the Swiss Film Awards 2019 in three categories.
