Born in 1921, Henry Brandt was a self-taught exponent of the cinematic and photographic arts. Together with Alain Tanner and Claude Goretta in particular, he was one of the co-founders of the Swiss Filmmakers Association (ARF/FDS) in 1962. Brandt produced a large number of films during an active professional career that spanned some 35 years. His shorts for the Swiss National Exposition in 1964 made a lasting impression on an entire generation of visitors.

The Henry Brandt project is the result of a fruitful partnership between specialists from the Department of Film History and Aesthetics (CIN) at the University of Lausanne (UNIL), the Swiss Film Archive (Cinémathèque suisse), the Audio-Visual Department of the City Library of La Chaux-de-Fonds (DAV) and the Neuchâtel Ethnographic Museum (MEN). A publication of over 300 pages is being released to mark the occasion.
