a look at xenix filmdistribution current offers clearly shows that mass-produced
fare is not their business. they prefer films that are convincing in their
commitment and creativity at the same time entertaining and encouraging
people to think. xenix filmdistribution enterprise distributes 8 to 12
movies a year. this way they can ensure a careful promotion in the german,
french and italian speaking parts of switzerland.
xenix filmdistribution are concerned about a careful selection of films.
contents and aesthetics are equally taken into consideration as well as
the balance of the range. therefore, a socially engaged, demanding piece
of work such as ROSETTA (palme d'or 1999)
by the dardenne brothers is equally found as the quiet and moving first
film SOLAS from spain. also the cult science fiction thriller CUBE
or the thoroughly styled AMERICAN PSYCHO have
their place. small but fine films such as the argentinean MUNDO GRUA
(awarded at various international film festivals) belong into xenix filmdistribution's
range, just as much as the icelandic comedy 101
REYKJAVIK with victoria abril.
xenix filmdistribution also care about swiss films. stina werenfels'
short fiction film PASTRY, PAIN & POLITICS,
luc schaedler's MADE
IN HONG KONG or the most recent film by gabriel baur VENUS
BOYZ (awarded best documentary at the locarno film festival 2001)
are some examples.
