About the film
For years Janns mother suffers from MS - multiple sclerosis. When he wants to know more about her disease, she can't speak anymore. In the hope of learning more, the then 18-year-old filmmaker embarks on a journey across Switzerland and meets other people living with MS: He meets Bernadette, who is still laughing, although sometimes she doesn't feel like it. Luana, who has encouraging words tattooed on her arm. He meets Melanie, who is building a verbose protective wall around herself. Oliver, who must divide his forces in the everyday life purposefully. Graziella, who's trying to maintain normalcy. Many of the protagonists speak very openly about their lives, which they can enjoy again and again despite all the restrictions and live very intensely.
The extraordinary documentary MULTIPLE SCHICKSALE - Vom Kampf um den eigenen Körper, the feature film debut of Jann Kessler, who is now 20 years old in Switzerland, personally shows strokes of fate and confidence, despair and courage, shocking, but also carefree and intensely touching moments. The camera provides deep insights and yet respectfully keeps distance.
In Switzerland, MULTIPLE SCHICKSALE - Vom Kampf um den eigenen Körper was a surprise success, it ran there very successfully in the cinemas. The film attracted a lot of attention nationwide for the previously incurable disease, which affects more than 200,000 people in Germany. A multilayered film, which does not retreat from the difficult questions as much as from the beautiful moments of life.
