The Story

This moving portrait of a defeated Arab officer in interwar Berlin takes you back in time almost a century ago giving an exciting visualization of life stories of Arabs and Muslims who lived in that crucial time of Europe. Amazing are their encounters with European interwar ideologies. «Karlstrasse 10» is an enduring tale of love, politics and arms deals through the lens of unique Arab family archives in Europe. Diving deep
into a story of war victims, religion, culture, mixed marriages, arms deals, mosques, politics and more, it is timeless film making a point that Arabs in interwar Europe were neither visitors nor colonial victims. (ERC Starting Grant Project NEITHER NOR - KU Leuven - Belgium)
