There’s something unreal about sitting in a hall with over four hundred people, most of whom you know, and showing a film that till then had only belonged to you and all those who worked along on it. My nervousness was unbounded. I’d have liked to give away my ticket and go home.

Luckily I stayed. The kind and appreciative reactions after the screening were overwhelming. And there were many brief encounters among them which moved me greatly, such as the one with an elderly gentleman I had never previously seen, who introduced himself to me with the words “I went to school with Hansruedi,” delivered in an unmistakeable Grisons accent. He thanked me for the film with tears in his eyes. What more could you ask for?
