"Horizontes“ by Eileen Hofer

UBP employees and their guests attended the Zurich premiere of „Horizontes“ by Eileen Hofer. This private viewing has been exclusively organised for UBP which supported the work of this Swiss film-maker.

This intimate event took place at the Houdini cinema and started with a light apero welcoming the guests followed by an the introduction of the movie by Eileen Hofer and a Mojito reception after the premiere.

“Horizontes” was inspired by Alicia Alonso, the “prima ballerina assoluta”, who began losing her sight at 19 but still pursued an outstanding career. The camera of Eileen Hofer, a former journalist, records not only the dancers’ pain, sweat and tears as their bodies are bent by work and perseverance – bodies that have become tools – but also their hopes, dreams and courage.
