About the Film
SEEDS OF DOUBT / FOLGESCHÄDEN
Director: Samir Nasr, Egypt/Germany, 88 mins, German and Arabic with English subtitles
Tariq, a scientist specializing in virus research is an Algerian Muslim who lives with his German Christian wife Maya, a gifted graphic designer, and their young son in liberal Hamburg. Trust, tolerance and love have always characterized their relationship, allowing them to bridge their cultural and religious differences. But their relationship is challenged when the police suspect Tariq of being connected to one of the masterminds of the 9/11 attacks. Maya initially refuses to believe that the man she loves might be a terrorist sympathizer or even part of a ‘sleeper’ cell. But Tariq’s evasive reaction to being shadowed by the police leads Maya to be gripped by fears and doubts. The script is tight and the direction suspenseful as Nasr demonstrates how doubt and racial profiling take seed within the home.
