The film is shown in the presence of the director Sema Poyraz

In the film series City Country Stranger, curated by Florian Wüst, bi’bakino # 27 shows the feature film Gölge. Gölge is Sema Poyraz‘ final film at the German Film and Television Academy in Berlin (dffb) and was developed in collaboration with her fellow Greek student Sofoklis Adamidis. The  film is about Gölge, who lives with her younger sister and her parents from Turkey in a small two-room apartment in Berlin-Kreuzberg. She tries to find a place for herself between the migrant and the German contexts surrounding her. Her dream is to become an actress. When her mother wants to give her more liberties, the father begins to suppress Gölge’s desires and dreams even more strongly. The idea for the screenplay came to Poyraz after watching a documentary about Turkish girls and women in Berlin, and was also influenced by her own experiences as a Turk in Germany. Gölge was co-produced by Sender Freies Berlin (SFB); The first broadcast was in August 1980 under the TV title Future of Love.
