Thomas Imbach


“I have never chosen to make a film based on a specific subject or strategy. There’s always a momentary flash of intuition. It’s like falling in love: you can never explain why it happened.”



Thomas Imbach is a Swiss maverick director, whose work is visual, edgy and performance driven. In 2007 he founded Okofilm Productions together with director/ producer Andrea Štaka. With Well Done (1994) and Ghetto (1997) he established his trademark audio-visual style based on a combination of cinema-verité camera-work and fast-paced computer controlled editing. His fiction feature films Happiness is a Warm Gun (which was nominated for the Golden Leopard at Locarno in 2001), Lenz (2006) and I was a Swiss Banker (2007) all premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival.
