International Media Response to “The Green Wave”

The movie “The Green Wave” by Ali Samadi Ahadi, Artist in Residence at the Käte Hamburger Center for Advanced Study in the Humanities "Law as Culture", which has already won numerous awards, has also received positive reviews from renowned media organizations throughout the world. Using innovative filmic devices, the movie tells about the protests in Iran in the summer of 2009 and how they were suppressed. With the movie now showing in the United States, the New Yorker weekly paper The Village Voice writes: “The Green Wave oscillates between that sort of despair and cautious optimism, ultimately leaning toward the latter in a way that feels earned rather than forced. That Ahadi and his team were able to safely compile, let alone edit together, this much ground-level footage is a feat in and of itself; that it comes together in such a compelling manner makes it almost vital.” You can further read the reviews by the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Seattle Times and NPR, the British newspaper The Guardian, as well as the Canadian newspaper The  Globe and Mail.

Further reviews of “The Green Wave” can be found here.

The Käte Hamburger Center for Advanced Study in the Humanities "Law as Culture" would like to honor its Artist in Residence Ali Samadi Ahadi on the occasion of his winning the renowned CIVIS Prize with an evening event on Tuesday, May 29, 2012. The award winning comedy "Salami Aleikum" will be screened in the Max Weber Lecture Room under the title "Documenting Rights in Comedy and Documentaries". The subsequent discussion, in which among others the WDR's commissioner for integration, Gualtiero Zambonini, will participate, offers the opportunity to pose questions to the artist regarding his work, in which a variety of narrative and aesthetic tools are employed to address issues of cultural conflict, struggle and the search for social aceptance. The CIVIS Media Prize which Ali Samadi Ahadi received together with Arne Noltig in the category of "Entertainment" is given yearly to the best programs on the topic of integration and cultural diversity in Europe.

Ali Samadi Ahadi, “Artist in Residence” for the research year “law and religion” (2012/12) is a multiple award winning director and screenwriter. Born in Tabris, Iran, he fled to Germany due to the first Gulf War at age 13. Following his Abitur in 1992, he studied social science, design for electronic media and visual communication in Hannover and Kassel.

In 2006, he was awarded the German Film Prize in the category “best documentary” for his work “Lost Children”, created together with Oliver Stoltz, documenting the fate of child soldiers in Uganda. In 2009, he received the German film critics’ prize in the category “best feature film debut” for his comedy “Salami Aleikum”. This movie also received the CIVIS Media Prize on May 9, 2012.

At the award ceremony in the European Parliament in Brussels on Wednesday, May 9, 2012, the jury praised the comedy's "first class cinematic and acting performance" which "playfully [toyed] with cultural stereotypes". "Salami Aleikum", for which Ali Samadi Ahadi already received the German Film Critics' prize for the best debut feature film in 2009, tells the story of a Persian butcher family from Cologne, whose trip to a remote East German village leads to a culture shock on both sides.
