There’s a man behind a camera looking for an image – but of what? Himself? The world? Society? A series of messages left on the filmmaker's answer phone and shots of Zurich's changing cityscape not only tell the story of a life, but also reveal a slice of contemporary history.


Thomas Imbach (1962) founded Okofilm with Andrea Staka, and together they have made a number of films screened at festivals around the world, including Well Done (1994), Ghetto (1997) Happiness is a Warm Gun (2001) and I Was a Swiss Banker (2007).
