VAGENDA STORIES
DIE FRUCHTBAREN JAHRE SIND VORBEI

Director: NATASCHA BELLER
SWITZERLAND
2019, 90'

A contemporary comedy about the misfortunes of three thirtysomething girlfriends dealing with the social pressure that focuses on children, careers and relationships. The biological clock is nothing compared to the one imposed by society, which crushes young women with the tenets of convention: “You shall marry! You shall procreate! You shall settle!”. The heroine tries to apply those conventions literally, with her determination leading her on paths littered with unexpected pitfalls.

Natascha Beller graduated from Zurich University of the Arts with subsequent screenplay training in New York. She is the winner of the ADC Young Creatives Award and co-author of the global viral hit “Switzerland Second”. She wrote the SRF films «Vaterjagd» (2014) and «Zwiespalt» (2017).
