Golshifteh Farahani’s remarkable Ibiza journey on L’OFFICIEL IBIZA
film star Golshifteh Farahani was exiled from her home country in 2009 for shattering accepted religious and cultural taboos. She speaks to Maya Boyd about fortune, fate and finding refuge in the northern hills of Ibiza. These places connect the party people to the yoga people, then to shamans and priests. They connect very diverse groups of people with one thing in common – a desire to create their own society. They are all social exiles, or they cannot find their place in the world. They don’t belong to anyone. I think Ibiza is a no-man’s land. At a party you can be a billionaire or a backpacker. No one cares. We are all exiles and it’s our choice to come together in a community. I have never felt like a foreigner here. I’m just a human being. I’m a woman. I’m a girl.
