August 1st is Switzerland's National Day! On this occasion, the Consulate General of Switzerland invites you to watch one of Switzerland's most beloved stories on screen: “Schellen-Ursli”.
Ursli and his parents work hard during the summer on the alp. When it is time for them to make their way down to the village, they lose all their goods in an accident. The family is forced to go into debt with the village's wealthy shopkeeper. When Ursli also receives the smallest bell for the “Chalandamarz” procession, he decides to take matters into his own hands...to help his parents and to find the biggest bell!
“Schellen-Ursli” (2015) by Oscar-winning Swiss director Xavier Koller can be streamed online for free from July 27 to August 3.
Acces information will be sent out by email on July 27.
