Remo Scherrer's animation film WHATEVER THE WEATHER is dedicated to the children of alchoholic parents. Wally’s life is increasingly turned upside down by her mother's alcohol addiction. Helplessness, excessive demands and desperation shape her childhood. WHATEVER THE WEATHER played at festivals worldwide including Cannes, IDFA, and Locarno. The film was awarded the Upcoming Filmmaker award at the Swiss Youth Film Festival in Lucerne. "Details emerge from a storm of images, reduced to black and white, silhouettes only: a Ferris wheel turning mechanically, children playing ball, one of whom standing a little way off, a knife suitable for slitting one’s wrist. They are part of the nightmares of an eight-year-old girl whose mother is an alcoholic." (Cornelia Klauß, DOK Leipzig)
