Focos y Retros / Foco Daniel Schmidto top

In 1992, aged 51, Daniel Schmid created Off Season, a film that is like a key to his oeuvre and his life. A grown-up man, Valentin, returns to the place of his childhood: an old hotel in the Swiss Alps. Memories flash up unexpectedly; his past manifests itself as a second reality level within the film. Just like in the old days, Valentin’s family move from room to room in the hotel –nomads in their own four walls– in line with the changing seasons. Without any actual shift of place, Off Season tells about journeys, journeys into the realm of dreams, fables and memories, something that Schmid was so well acquainted with through his own experience.
