Director Statement

I have a very strong connection with women, having a mother and two sisters in a very traditional culture. They have always made me think that women are stronger than men in some situations. We all know that women are the ones who give birth, and the way I see it this does not make it easier for them to live their lives. They struggle with everything that happens in good and bad times. Whatever society they live in or faith they believe in. Like the story of Maria, or Maryam, in this film.
