Res Balzli had just a few days to shoot this insightful portrait of the Swiss actress and puppeteer Johana Bory. BOUTON – that’s the name of the self-made puppet which is a part of Johana’s comedic performances for children. At the same time Bouton is her voice, her confidant and her counterpart through whom she’s reflecting her feelings and experiences. Between reality and fiction, between laughter and tears, she is dealing with the question how to handle living, knowing that you are dying.
