    • Far from home / MoMA New York
      The restored version of FAR FROM HOME by Sohrab Shahid is part of the film series "Iranian Cinema before the Revolution, 1925-1979) at MoMA New York MoMA The Museum of Modern Art The screening is today, 8.11.2023 at 7 pm.

      A German-Iranian co-production in German and Turkish by Provobis Film (producer: O. E. Kress) and Neue Film-Gruppe Teheran from 1975.

      PROVOBIS is committed to the digitization of all the films it has produced by Sohrab Shahid Saless. The film edition of Saless' complete works is an initiative of the film historian and curator Vivien Buchhorn and is published by her together with the Goethe-Institut.
      The digitization of the film IN DER FREMDE was financed by the film heritage funding programme of the BKM, the federal states and the FFA.
      Content of the film:
      What does it mean to live in another country? Husseyin comes to West Berlin from Turkey, climbs the stairs of the subway stations, uncertain and yet curious, he looks along the facades of the buildings. But his new surroundings despise him, giving him no home between monotonous work on a stamping press, stairwell chatter and everyday racism.

      Sohrab Shahid Saless' first film shot in Germany gives an insight into the condition of a person who leaves his homeland and is condemned to remain a seeker. The film allows us to sense a social climate in West Germany whose after-effects are still visible today.
