Susanna Knittel, a filmmaker, Continuum movement teacher, writer and mentor came of age in the Jungian community in Zurich, Switzerland. Her relationship to her unconscious is central to her life.
She studied with Emilie for over twenty years. With Continuum she found a way to integrate her experience of dance, eros and ritual as witnessed while working in Africa.
Impelled by the culture’s rapid loss of connection with nature and the body, she has returned to her first medium, filmmaking. Her documentary Falling for the Mountain is a love story between people and the land her family inherited in the Swiss Alps.
