Sohrab Shahid Saless : Exiles

Fatehrad, Azadeh [Curator] and Perneczky, Nikolaus [Curator] (2017) Sohrab Shahid Saless : Exiles. .


The first retrospective of Iranian- German Filmmaker in the UK. The visionary filmmaker Sohrab Shahid Saless (1944-1998) was one of the great exiles of World Cinema. A seminal figure of the Iranian New Wave, Shahid Saless moved to West Germany in the mid-1970s, where this self-described “guest worker” created an unparalleled body of works for cinema and television: In meditative but searing images of everyday life, his slow-paced films tell simple stories that speak forcefully to the traumas of homelessness and displacement. They are more urgent than ever today.
