Memories Of The Foreign

Tolga Karaaslan (AT)

Revisiting places and memories of Fatma Selek, the grandmother of the filmmaker, who came to Wels, Austria, in 1973 as a guest worker. Her interview from 2012 gives insight into her experiences and struggles, such as being separated from her children for years, language barriers and the feeling of being torn between two countries. Her voice is accompanied by black and white Super 8 footage of places that shaped her life in Austria. Filmed fifty years after her arrival in Wels.
