Rondo, Via Maistra 133: Wed, 09.08.2023 | 5.00 pm - 7.30 pm
Schellen-Ursli is a family film based on the Swiss children´s book of the same name, directed by Oscar winner Xavier Koller in 2015. The film will be played on big screen with the dialogues - the music will be played live to it by the Graubünden Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Ludwig Wicki.
While distributing the bells for the annual Chalandamarz procession, Ursli receives the smallest bell, much to everyone´s amusement, and is teased by Roman as "Schellen-Ursli". Now he decides to show everyone. He dares the impossible and sets out to fetch the big bell from the Maiensäss despite snow and ice.
The Schellen-Ursli film won numerous awards and is ranked 5th among the most successful Swiss films of all time. Success factors were the successful adaptation of the classic children´s book by Selina Chönz and Alois Carigiet from 1945, the spectacular landscape shots from the Lower Engadine, the actors* and the film music by Emmy-nominated and Hollywood-active Swiss composer Martin Tillmann.
