Les Ambassadeurs Talk with Thomas Meyer and Joel Basman

Wolkenbruchs Reise in die Arme einer Schickse / Wolkenbruch's Wondrous Journey into the Arms of a Shiksa

On Friday, 15 March 2019, a “wondrous journey” took place at the Les Ambassadeurs boutique in Lucerne. Moderator Kaspar Loeb spoke with Thomas Meyer, the successful Swiss screenwriter of the film “Wolkenbruchs Reise in die Arme einer Schickse”, and Joel Basman, the talented lead actor.

Thomas Meyer and Joel Basman entertained the audience with humour, background information about the film, and a glimpse into the life of Orthodox Jewish families. The personal perspectives about arranged marriages, co-habiting and divorce were also fascinating.

During the cocktail reception that followed, Thomas Meyer and Joel Basman were happy to engage in conversation, and the atmosphere was extremely convivial.

We would like to thank our partner brand Frédérique Constant, moderator Kaspar Loeb, Thomas Meyer and Joel Basman, along with all the attendees, for contributing to a very pleasant evening. We have put together a video (see below) with impressions from the talk as well as some of the questions answered by the guest speakers.


PS: One week after the event, Joel Basman won the Swiss Film Award 2019 in the category “best actor” (in Wolkenbruch).
