Sound Design for a documentary, 2009, Germany/Afghanistan, directed by Niloufar Shahisavandi, 22 Min., OmeU
Generation Rain is a stirring documentary about five German/Iranian actresses that are travelling to Kabul, Afghanistan with their dance-theater project in 2007. An intense exchange with afghan actresses at a national theatre festival is raising issues about the role of theater in society.
The sound design for this documentary project was a challenging task. The aim was to edit and improve the existing material through little changes but without adding any new sounds. The original sound and mood had to be obtained to keep the content realistic.
