Anri Sala

Anri was born in 1974 in Tirana, Albania. Lives and works in Berlin, Germany.

In Intervista, Anri Sala -the young son of the former head of the Communist Youth Alliance- discovers a twenty-year
old 16mm film, the record of an interview with his mother. However, the film is silent and the soundtrack lost with
time -along with the idealism that it captured. His mother no longer remembers what was said. Intent on finding the
lost soundtrack, Anri seeks out anyone who might remember or was involved with the recording of the interview, but
must eventually take the film to lip readers at a school for the deaf. Finally confronting his mother with her younger
self, past and present collide to offer a moving reflection on the chaos of personal and national history.
