Best Student Film, 2012


Handschlag (Switzerland, 19 min)

Directed & Produced by Gregor Frei

Rudy is on the ropes. Alone at the building yard, alone at home – what keeps him living is to play ball games in the evening, notably with his best friend Martin. One day, Asim, young apprentice, appears at the building yard. Rudy is embarrassed. He, who always worked alone and who isn’t used to meet new people, suddenly feel like he has to justify. When Rudy realizes that Asim is not at all confident with a real Swiss worker’s habits and that Martin’s son Fabian applied for the same apprenticeship as Asim, the situation gets more complicated. Because Asim is more than just young and foreign. He is bright and sprouting, too. And he has the gift of the gab!
