SHADOWLESS – IN TRANSIT
Azin Faizabadi / Germany, France, Iran / 2023 / 25 min / World Premiere
A dreamy and enigmatic film about facing your own shadow and stare back at it through the viewfinder of a camera.
A hybrid fiction-documentary film about a traveller from Iran whose shadow wants to make itself independent upon arrival in Germany. Facing it and gazing at the shadow with the help of his video camera, memories and flashbacks cut rhythmically into the traveller’s records of the present until a remix of his past and future occurs. All this in an in-between space, in a non-place, ‘In Transit’.
