  • Machulenco

  • Unveiled (Fremde Haut)
    (Angelina Maccarone, Germany, German and Farsi w/ English Subtitles, 2005, 35mm, 97 min.)

    Director Angelina Maccarone (Everything Will Be Fine) returns with Unveiled, a stunningly beautiful portrait of an Iranian refugee struggling between her survival in small-town Germany and her love for a local woman.

    Fariba, persecuted in Iran because of a lesbian relationship, flees to Germany but her application for asylum is rejected. When her fellow inmate, a man named Siamak, commits suicide, Fariba assumes his identity and is sent to a refugee camp in a small German village. At first her survival seems assured, but the strain of upholding her male disguise in the cramped refugee quarters means a single mistake could blow her cover - at great personal peril. In order to pay for forged documents, Fariba takes an illegal job in a sauerkraut factory, where she is harassed about not wanting to shower with the boys and about being Iranian. The only saving grace is a German woman named Anne, to whom she grows close - dangerously close - as Anne begins to suspect Fariba's true identity.

    Striking cinematography and remarkable performances work together to tell a captivating story that reveals the struggles of refugees, the confines of gender and the power of love.
