SHAHID

 

SYNOPSIS:

A wildly clever film that’s part reality, part fiction, part theatre and part musical.  Director Narges Shahid Kalhor directs an actor playing a version of herself. She doesn’t want to be called “Shahid” (martyr) anymore, and is determined to change her name.  Then, her heroic great-grandfather turns up – given the title of martyr 100 years ago in Iran – from whom his descendants inherited the name.  He wants to dissuade his great-granddaughter, and shadows her in her quest along with his dancing friends.  The Bavarian district administration sends her to a psychologist, who also has a difficult name…
