Trailer for Swiss/Japanese feature documentary "Negative: Nothing" by brothers Jan and Stephan Knuesel. "Negative: Nothing" depicts the life and journey of Thomas Koehler, a Swiss guy who walked 2900 kilometers across Japan after the devastating tsunami in 2011 in order to help and give back to the country he loves since childhood and which provided for his livelihood for over a decade.
BEHIND THE SCENES:
The film has been distributed by the filmmakers themselves with a unique grass roots approach. It gained a strong following in Japan and Switzerland. Initially largely ignored by film festivals and the film industry in Switzerland and Japan, "Negative: Nothing" has found its audience and has been regularly playing in cultural institutions, art house theaters and also commercial theaters in Japan, Switzerland and Germany from 2012 until 2014. More than 15'000 people have seen the film so far (as of Oct 2014). In 2014 the film has been licensed to play on all international SWISS Airlines flights for 6 months.
Produced by Asienspiegel and Thom Pictures.
Written, Directed & Edited by Jan Knuesel, Stephan Knuesel
