Event description

Description

Time of Maturity patiently details the domestic co-existence of a mother and her son in a desolate urban environment, inviting us to share in the boy’s perception of their daily rituals and routines. There is little in the way of plot development; the action is circular, bordering on stasis. And yet the film’s inexorable rhythm draws us ever closer into this confined, unforgiving world, towards the son’s slowly dawning understanding of his mother’s nightly comings and goings – his coming of age.

West Germany 1976, 111 min, digital version, German with English subtitles. Directed by Sohrab Shahid Saless. Written by Sohrab Shahid Saless and Helga Houzer. Cinematography by Ramin Reza Molai. With Mike Hennig, Eva Mannhardt, Eva Lissa, Charles H. Vogt, Heinz Lieven.

Sohrab Shahid Saless: Exiles is curated by Dr. Azadeh Fatehrad and Nikolaus Perneczky in partnership with the Goethe-Institut London and in collaboration with the Munich Film Museum. With support from the Visual and Material Culture Research Centre, Kingston University (London), Iran Heritage Foundation (London) and Arts Council England. We would like to thank our partner venues Close-Up and the ICA.
