This first-ever documentary about Annemarie Schwarzenbach is the portrait of a woman from one of the biggest fortunes of Zurich—a family with open inclinations towards the Nazi order. A writer, journalist, and photographer, Schwarzenbach traveled the world denouncing European fascism and the exploitation of American workers.
A complex woman, she lead an unending quest for identity, struggled with drug addiction, and lived a bohemian life in Berlin in the twenties and thirties. Filmmaker Carole Bonstein reveals the fascinating story of a lesbian political radical, a romantic deceiver, and an adventurer who rejected her prescribed role in life. A model of courage? An eternally uprooted woman? Who was Annemarie Schwarzenbach? A Swiss Rebel looks at these questions and more.
