4 pm All the Fuzzy People (2023 Germany) Episodes 1 to 2, 40 min Guests: Janina Prem and Julius Lotter Moderation: Ann Mayer
‘Five countrymen from rural Bavaria – that’s Brew Berrymore basically. Who have moved to the city and don’t feel like the conservative life in the countryside.’ ‘All the Fuzzy People’ followed the band Brew Berrymore more than 9 months in the making of their latest album ‘Fuzzy People’. From the first jam sessions to the finished album, there is a close look behind the scenes of the indie rock band. But Brew Berrymore is more than just making music: again and again, the musicians are committed to social projects and together with the organization Space Eye, even set up a transport of relief supplies to the Bosnian refugee camp Bihać. The series shows the dichotomy between their origins in the rural Lower Bavaria, the conservative prejudices and the desire for more. More openness, more acceptance and more music.

There she becomes a slave worker and has to endure violence and abuse. Nevertheless, she does not give up hope of returning to her mother.

The aim was to deal with the topic, which is often little discussed in Switzerland, to the younger target group on Instagram.

Leo and Denny, two young guys. Here a rebellious poacher in the Alps, there a lost murderer in the Wild West. The actors, plastic mannequins with human physiognomies, drift through real Alpine snowy landscapes and the vastness of barren desert areas. They love, ride, drink, dance, pray, philosophize, shoot animals – and they shoot against each other. Song interludes comment on the plot and transform it into fantastic, surreal spheres. Quitt = art, comic, trash! Based on a novel by Theodor Fontane.
