Switzerland 1989, video, colour, 44 min.
The film circles around Namibias indepenence day, the first of april 1989. Marianne Pletscher and her team spent a few weeks with two women: the Swiss Christine von Garnier who married a „German Southwesterner“ and lived 20 years on a farm (Germany originally colonised Namibia) and the Namibian Rosas Namesis, who spent all her life in the black Ghetto of Windhoek, the capital. The two so different women met while doing social work in the church and became friends.
When the film was made is gave a broad background to the news, today it still offers a large and colorful image oft he history of Namibia
