Annette Frei Berthoud

Historian, Journalist, Author, Film Producer

She studied history and ethnology at the University of Zurich. Her dissertation "Red Patriarchs" was the first of several books and studies on the history of Swiss women. As an ethnologist, she did research in Crete, where she lived in a pastoral family. Years later she returned to the island to make a film about the origins of matriarchy. Curiosity and interest in people, stories and cultures led her to make a documentary film. Around a hundred films for NZZ Format, the television programme of the "Neue Zürcher Zeitung", but also for Swiss television, are the result of a passion that took her all over the world and continues to drive her even after many years.
