Thomas Imbach?s previous works have consistently explored the boundaries between fiction and documentary, traditional filmmaking and new technologies. Following Well Done (1994) and Ghetto (1997) he applied his distinctive combination of cinema-verité camera-work, fast-paced editing and non-professional actors to fictional works using professional actors. His first full-length feature film Happiness is a Warm Gun was screened in the international competition at Locarno in 2001. Between 2006 and 2011, his feature films Lenz and I was a Swiss Banker, as well as his documentary auto-fiction Day Is Done all premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival. His latest film, Mary Queen of Scots, is his first English-language feature film.
