Paul Nizon: Der Nagel im Kopf
Christoph Kühn, Switzerland, 2020o
The film recounts the Swiss writer Paul Nizon's radical and life-long search for identity and personal integrity. At 90 years old, Paul Nizon grants insights into his life and work in a self-ironic, direct manner. The intimate portrait of a great literary outsider emerges, for whom the risks of life and the risks of writing merge into a single, unified work of art.
