Lionel Rupp directed A Campaign Of Their Own, which examines the 2016 Us presidential campaign and the aftermath through the eyes of activist Jonathan Katz.
Michael David Mitchell produced and co-wrote the film, which follows Katz as he rallies behind the primary campaign of Democrat hopeful Bernie Sanders and questions the nomination process once Sanders concedes the nomination to Hillary Clinton.
A Campaign Of Their Own is a Zooscope Production with the support of Cinéforom and Loterie Romande and the support of Swiss Films.
The documentary screens on Tuesday in Locarno’s Panorama Suisse section for Swiss films that
