Here My Village
Original title: Inja deh-e man [Inja Dehe man]
German title: Hier, mein Zuhause
Farhad lives with his mother and his little sister in an unimportant desert village. They own nothing more than a small house and a few sheep. They can only get to the next bigger town in the car of their neighbour, Mr Behrouz. The young man has cast an eye at Farhad’s mother. One day he brings a fashion magazine from the city and gives it to Farhad. He is enthusiastic about the photographs, but his mother thinks it is all nonsense. It is more important that he tends the sheep and takes care of the family as a prospective husband. But his passion for photography has been awakened: Farhad secretly tries to scrape up money for a small digital camera and stops at nothing. His mother is desperate and fears that he will ruin her. But with every beautiful photograph that Farhad takes and hangs on the walls of the house, her reservations dwindle. His next step is writing an e-mail to the editors of the fashion magazine – the outcome, however, is uncertain.
