Raised to the rank of legend thanks to his text in Bernese dialect "Totemügerli", the author and cabarettist Franz Hohler displays an imposing body of poems, stories, sketches, songs and novels for adults and children: To children he explains how the journey of a little maggot gave birth to the name “made in Hong Kong”, to adults “how the mountains arrived in Switzerland”. His texts sharpen our gaze on the little things of everyday life, flushing out in the most banal of textbooks a “poetry where the language itself speaks”. Director Deborah Epstein aims to shed light on Hohler's varied oeuvre, exploring all the subtle nuances of the comedian's countless supposedly innocent puns. Because Hohler seriously cares about nature and society, when he denounces his country's xenophobia, for example, in songs like "Schweizer sein" ("to be Swiss") and "s'Usschaffigslied" ("song of dismissal") ) or that he caused controversy in the 1980s with his “Dienstverweigererlied” (“song of the conscientious objector”). Today, at almost 80 years old, Franz Hohler continues to write and explore his work, contemplating the Earth "between creation and the end of the world" during readings and public performances.
