Interview mit Regisseurin Lisa Gerig

Meet the Filmmakers: CONVERSATION OVER THE FENCE

Regisseurin Lisa Gerig

 

What is the teaser text for your film CONVERSATION OVER THE FENCE?

An insight in the political „solution“ for illegal refugees in Switzerland, that are put in prison, without ever having committed a crime.

What is the original idea of your film – how did it all start?

Three years ago, a friend of mine was detained in this prison for three week before being flown back to Nigeria. Since then I knew about its existence and its unbearable arrest-conditions and I want people to know about it too, so one day it will change.
