Mourning for Claude Nobs

Claude Nobs, the founder of the Montreux Jazz Festival, died yesterday at the age of 76. During last year’s Jazz Festival, the director Christian Neu accompanied “Funky Claude” for a planned documentary film.

“Anyone lucky enough to meet Claude had a date with inspiration personified. Claude's dreams had nothing to do with reality and this was the reason why he was able to make them come true. Claude's legacy is so much more than this festival and the music library, which is now World Cultural Heritage - it is his message that "nothing is impossible", and he lived the evidence every day."

THE MYSTERIES OF OUR FOREST in Open Air Cinemas

THE MYSTERIES OF OUR FOREST is shown in Swiss cinemas starting August 2. Program

The forest. Whether one uses it or not, it stimulates our senses and enlivens our fantasies. It even seems that this large, green stranger can initiate instincts and emotions in us that were forgotten long ago. For thousands of years forests and human beings were connected by a one-sided and limited purpose: for man to take what the forest gives – with near destruction included. Alternately, our forests have been the subject of poetry and romance, adventure, myth and religion. What is it about forests that touches or souls, that makes us frightened, that swings the pendulum of our emotions between melancholy and pure happiness? What impact do they have? What secrets do our forests hold?
