Veiled

Veiled (OT: Schleierhaft)

Short | 14 min | Austria | 2013 


Tahirs life is determined by a bold double life. He is fascinated by wearing a niqab, but as he decides to disguise himself, his son Adel watches him. Just before Tahir is able to explain himself properly, his wife Emel appears and the son carelessly tells her about the dress-up game of his father. An argument brakes out in which Adel gets tossed around by his family and finds himself caught between tolerance and tradition.
