The first feature-length film by Pascal Hofmann and Benny Jaberg documents the eventful life and cinematic legacy of an exceptional Swiss director of both films and operas, Daniel Schmid. It spans his formative childhood in a Belle Epoque hotel in the Grisons mountains, where the hotel was his set and the guests his characters. Follow his escape from the peaceful Alps to turbulent 1960s Berlin, where he fell in love with cinema. Little did he know that one day his work would stand with filmmaking legends like Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Rosa von Praunheim.

The film delves into the worldly nightlife of 1970s Paris, and shows Schmid filming on location in Morocco, Portugal, and his native Grisons. Daniel Schmid – Le chat qui pense traces the eventful life of a gifted artist, who discovered early the magic of storytelling.
