Director Statement

FootWriting is related to the capabilities of a Young artist with a physical disability. A person who has suffered from an accident during childhood and has been living without hands for many years. A youth who, with everyday challenges, paints his inner feelings with artistic expression. He lives with passion, and romance within his mother and beloved fiancé. This life is commendable. The subject of the film on behalf of Mr. Tabatabaei Pour and Professor Moshiri was suggested to me to carry out the necessary research. In the first encounter with this person and seeing him, questions arose in my mind. How is possible to live without hands? How can he eat? How does He painting with his leg? How does he baths and clean? How does him buy the gadgets and carry them? And hundreds of questions like this. His life was interesting for me. To achieve these ambiguities and mental disengagement about Rahim Azimi (the personality of the film), I started the necessary research, production of “Footwring” movie was started.
