Shortly after Mia met Hansruedi, she accompanied him in 1978 to Shepperton Studios in London to assist him in his work on the film Alien. Mia also attended the Oscars in 1980.
Mia and Hansruedi married in 1979. Although the marriage only lasted one and a half years, after their divorce she continued working as his assistant for nearly 20 years. They remained good friends right up until his death.
Giger left Mia the holiday chalet and adjoining barn on Alp Foppa above Flims. Hansruedi inherited the houses from his parents. He spent practically all his holidays as a child and teenager there. Together with her husband Charly Bieler, Bonzanigo turned the barn into a ‘Capunseria’, a restaurant specializing in Graubünden delicacies. Hansruedi Giger visited the restaurant for the first time while we were filming in the fall of 2013, just a few months before his death.
