Passion – Between Revolt and Resignation
Regissør: Christian Labhart
(Sveits)

PHILOSOPHY: The documentary Passion – Between Revolt and Resignation reflects on man's willingness to engage in his time and to rebel.

"I was absolutely sure of one thing: We should never be like our parents." Christian Labhart looking back, to 1968 and the city of Zurich he grew up in, at a time when the waves of the sixties countercultural revolution reached Switzerland. It's a personal story the filmmaker tells in Passion – Between Revolt and Resignation which had its world premiere during the documentary film Visions du Reel in Nyon earlier this year. The diary-like documentary lasts for decades and reflects on the political earthquakes that have shaken the world during Labhart's lifetime. At the same time, he announces a varying form curve in his own community engagement, his activism and his vision of a more just world order.

The documentary is very personal, but also offers a review of recurring events – from Chernobyl accident to Berlin Wall fall and 9/11 in New York – which has led to a new world understanding. And what happens when rebellious young people grow up and see their parents' faces, which they rebelled against, look back at them from the mirror, and their youth's belief in change has not manifested itself in changes around them?

Disasters and riots

When he was young, the newly saved left-wing radical Labhart applied for teaching jobs, where his fascination with anti-authoritarian teaching methods was realized. Together with six others, he also ran a farm collective for a period, and we get a glimpse of him. . .
