The Girl and The Spider official trailer
The Girl and The Spider directed by Ramon Zürcher and Silvan Zürcher

Cinema Guild debuted the official trailer for The Girl and The Spider, the Swiss drama film from filmmaking brothers Ramon Zürcher and Silvan Zürcher that premiered at the 2021 Berlin International Film Festival where the Zürchers won the award for Best Director.

The film stars Henriette Confurius and Liliane Amuat as two women who have been living together, and follows the emotional complications as one moves out to a new apartment.

Also starring in the film are Ursina Lardi, Flurin Giger, André Hennicke, Ivan Georgiev, Dagna Litzenberger-Vinet, Lea Draeger, Sabine Timoteo and Birte Schnöink.

The Girl and The Spider opens April 8 in New York, April 15 in Los Angeles and cities across the country.

As her roommate Lisa prepares to move out of their apartment, Mara contemplates the end of an era. Furniture is moved, walls painted, cupboards built. Amid all the hustle and bustle, secret longings and desires come to the surface and coalesce around the roommates as well as around Lisa’s mother Astrid, the movers, the girls’ old neighbors, the neighbors’ cat, Lisa’s new neighbor and an ever-expanding cast of characters. Day turns into night and one final party in the apartment. When the last box is moved, the fragments of their lives remain. The Zürcher brothers compose a poetic panopticon of forms of human relationships that is at once a study of everyday life, a fairytale and a psychological portrait of a brittle world. Following The Strange Little Cat, The Girl and the Spider is the second installment in a trilogy about human togetherness, a ballad about the need for closeness and the pain of separation.
