Sohrab Shahid Saless: Exiles

Saless










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.

Sohrab Shahid Saless: Exiles is curated by Dr. Azadeh Fatehrad and Nikolaus Perneczky in partnership with the Goethe-Institut London and in collaboration with the Munich Film Museum. With support from the Visual and Material Culture Research Centre, Kingston University (London), Iran Heritage Foundation (London) and Arts Council England. We would like to thank our partner venues Close-Up and the ICA.
