Life in Movement – now screening in Switzerland.

Following the very successful cinema release of Tanja – Life in Movement in Europe in 2013, where it was screened in over 60 cities and towns in Germany, this documentary (subtitled in German) will now be seen across Switzerland.

The Swiss premiere took place in Zurich on 2 May 2014, where the audience included Liedtke family members and friends. Gerlinde Liedtke welcomed the audience and spoke about the work of the Tanja Liedtke Foundation.

Life in Movement is also widely available on DVD from a number of online shops in Australia, including Closer Productions, the directors of the film. In Germany the DVD will go on sale end of 2014.
