Blue My Mind

Year 2017
Runtime 97 mins
Language Swiss German
Subtitles English

Just before the summer vacation 15-year-old Mia and her parents move to the suburbs of Zürich. While Mia plunges into a wild teenager existence, her body begins to change radically. At first it’s hardly noticeable, but then the transformation begins to drive her out of her mind. Feeling completely distressed, and with no one to talk to, she attempts to numb herself with sex and drugs, hoping to halt the process. But nature is more powerful.

Lisa Brühlmann’s feature debut is a unique, strange, and fantastical coming of age film, blurring the genre lines throughout.
