‘Heidis Land’ is about the zone between clichées and reality. Clichés are built up over a long time and they infiltered our imaginations, thinkings and views on a country or culture. ‘Heidis Land’ is a confrontation of the clichés in my mind and the reality as i live and feel it. ‘Heidis Land’ deals with the perception of Switzerland the Swiss like to convey, and the tourists likes to see.
