Clara And The Secret Of The Bears

Clara und das Geheimnis der Bären

film-roll Germany, Switzerland / Color / 93' / 2012

Thirteen-year-old Clara lives with her mother and stepfather on a remote farm in the Swiss Alps. She lives in close touch with nature and can see and sense things that others are incapable of perceiving. Clara’s discovery of an ancient girl’s shoe leads to contact with Susanna, a girl who had lived on the same farm 200 years ago. Susanna is very worried: when her father captured a bear cub, the mother bear placed a curse on the house. Together the two girls attempt to break the curse and redress the balance of nature. Based on the novel “Het vervloekte huis” by Marian van der Heiden.
