DIRECTOR STATEMENT:

  • In fact what is currently common as social movies in Iran and always has been encouraged by festivals, is only a decorated skin based on the pre-defined taste of powerful festivals but I should say that exclusive of different aspects of poverty and exoticism in third world countries, what makes our society is imagination. Making this film was a high-risk path which we made ourselves free of any weapon even standard cameras and other technical equipment of cinema. Imagination and improvisation for discovering reality from the restoration of reality.
