Morges - Exposition
Switzerland in the movies - When Heidi and James Bond meet in Morges.
BACKDROP SWITZERLAND EXPO is a cultural exhibition that brings together iconic photographic documents, posters and extracts from foreign films that use Switzerland as a backdrop from 1900 to the present day.
The exhibition presented in Morges will explore the theme of Lake Geneva, its shores and cities. Geneva, of course, with its banks and its international dimension, but also Lausanne, which, for example, Chabrol films in Merci pour le chocolat (2001).
The mountain offers an even richer and more varied filmography. The themes chosen are those of the adventure and spy film, including the not-to-be-missed Goldfinger (1961) with Sean Connery in the role of James Bond. But we also find the contemporary mountain as a holiday destination with Sils Maria (2014) by Olivier Assayas with Juliette Binoche and Kristen Stewart or Youth (2015) by Paolo Sorrentino.
Or the comedy with Laurel and Hardy in the Alps with Swiss Miss (1938).
However, Heidi will occupy a central position with more than 9 animated or fiction feature films, as well as television series in Europe, Japan and the United States.
