Projection spéciale at Visions du Réel 2017

Avant-première in the presence of Erich Eicher and Karoline Arn! For a long time, the Bernese musician Stephan Eicher has suspected that he has Yenish roots, although the subject was never addressed by his parents. Together with his brother Erich Eicher, lawyer and also musician, and accompanied by the directors Karoline Arn and Martina Rieder, the two men set off to trace their origins. Stephan Eicher will then learn that, in the same way that his Yenish heritage was hidden in his family, Yenish music is behind Swiss folk music. A story reduced to silence in the discrimination and persecution of a people that the film tells here, without forgetting to honour the music itself.
