Description:
A portrait of a talented high school student who murders his parents in cold blood, Diary of My Mind is based on real-life events. Challenging the established moral norms, Ursula Meier depicts the inner anguish of the perpetrator with outstanding lucidity and intuitive acumen.

On 27 February 2009, pupil Benjamin Feller turns himself in to the police, admitting the crime that he has meticulously described beforehand in a diary entry, outlining his motive, careful planning and state of mind that incited him to commit this horrible deed. He sends the diary to his teacher before shooting his parents. Although trying to understand the events in retrospect, the teacher herself - as the journal's addressee - is increasingly targeted by the police. Diary of My Mind is the first part in a series of four films on true cases, produced by the Swiss television in cooperation with young filmmakers and aimed at lending some insight into the tragic events that shocked the local public.

"I like marginal characters in movies, characters who don't look like other people, who feel out of this world, who feel differently." (Ursula Meier)
