DOCUMENTARY From Zurich to the Ganges: A associative portrait of Dieter Meier, best known as the singer and lyricist of the Swiss duo »Yello«. Dieter Meier – gambler, poet, writer, film-maker, photographer, bon vivant and of course the voice of Yello, founded at the end of the 1970s in Zurich and still today a music project full of expressivity and pleasure in experimentation. For more than 30 years, Peter Sempel and his camera accompanied the Swiss artist and his extreme energy and versatility. Be it in Hamburg, New York, Los Angeles, Marrakesh or the Himalayas, much of the film was unplanned and thus corresponds to Meier‘s Babylonian way of working, which is also often led by chance.


Since 1981, PETER SEMPEL (*1954) has been making films about artists, including Blixa Bargeld and Nick Cave (Dandy, 1988), Bazon Brock, Jonas Mekas, Kazuo Ohno, Ginsberg, Nina Hagen, Flamenco, Lemmy, Jonathan Meese, the art world and jazz musician Peter Brötzmann.
