Production

The documentary was shot in Switzerland, Germany, India and the United States between April and July 2013. It premiered at Locarno International Film Festival. It was released in Swiss cinemas in November 2014 and in German and Austrian cinemas in November 2015.

Reception

The Hollywood Reporter researcher Boyd van Hoeij says about the film: "A fascinating look at a complex human being’s many up and downs" and "Instead of becoming a long list of occurrences, accomplishments, reinventions and psychological challenges and transformations, the film naturally brings all these elements together to paint a picture of an extremely complex human being [...] who had to try and find out the hard way who he was and what he wanted out of life." Madeleine Hirsiger from Locarno International Film Festival says about the film: "...excellently and densely edited portrait leads the spectator into an anxiety from which there is no escape."
