'Schleierhaft' and new Film Festival Selections
2013, 2nd September:
'Schleierhaft', which means something like mysterious but is also a clever wordplay with the word schleier (the veil or burqa), is a drama centered on an Egyptian family in Vienna, Austria. When Tahir's Son Adel sees his father trying out a Niqab, a cloth covering the face and worn by some Muslim women, he is confused and soon tells his mother who begins to worry.
