BEST SWISS FILM (Int. Film Festival Lucerne)


The story is about Benjamin Lewis, a 25 year old man who is living on his own in a
very human-deserted area. But he is actually quite happy, because all he really needs
are his friends on the social platform “Tracebook” who listen to him and send him
love from around the world. Today, just having reached his 1000th friend, he wants
to meet his virtual girlfriend in reality. But his destiny will change his entire virtual
life, so that everything takes a different course than planned on “Tracebook”.


Eight Flowers (“Acht Blumen”) is a 30min short film written, directed and produced
by the upcoming Swiss filmmaker Timo von Gunten (22 years old). In colaboration
with an award-winning editor from Hollywood and a César prize winning composer
in Paris the low budget production shows enourmous production value.
