[x]Topsyturvy
Documentary

Year of production: 2013
 
In 2004, Rita Ziegler made a documentary film about an alpine farming family in the Schächental, called “Up there in the mountains”.  Now, eight years later, she is working on the continuation of the story, called “Topsyturvy”.  This new film follows the development of the family history during the crucial years of transition where the children grow up to adulthood and the relationships to their parents change.  It also points out the changing living conditions and expectations of alpine farmers who have to adjust to present conceptions.
 
Members of the Gisler family experience both success and simultaneously difficult times.  Over the years, Rita Ziegler has built up a close personal relationship with the family which allows her to touch on delicate subjects, such as the separation of the parents.
 
The year 2012 seems to be a period of transition with many uncertainties.  The plans for the future of the young ones appear to be more wishful thinking than reality. However, the three boys team up to produce a ‘cow-styling-project’, called ‘Gisler-plow’ for show presentation.  Mother and daughter envisage their future rather away from the farm. However, the farm remains a power centre for all, a place of comfort and recovery in touch with animals and nature.
