Director Biography - Ghasem badirkhani

Biography of Ghasem Badirkhani

I 'm Ghasem Badirkhani. I was born in Iran, at Ardabil city in 1975. I have been writing short story and printing some of them in magazine since my teenager. I had learned the prime principle film making in the young cinema community in Ardebil when I was in high school.
Despite of my intense interest about art and cinema I had to continue my education in mathematics because of the lack of leader and mathematics was my major in high school.
But I have never given up to write and to study novel.
After finishing my academic education I had been working in IRB in Tehran the capital of Iran as a producer's assistant, director's assistant a mean while I participated in editing and
directing class.
Gradually I have started to make short films. I made my first short film under
the name of (THE PLAY) in 2003 with very low budget.
Then I was hired in Iran T.v (IRIB), as a sound maker.
But all the time I feel that I had lack of something in my life because of not going to Art University so I provided the cinema's books and began to study them after many years I was accepted in Art and Architecture University in Dramatic Literature in MA in Tehran in 2011.I graduated in 2013. At the same time because of my experiences in editing I have been teaching in ELMI KARBIRDI University in Tehran.
If someone doesn't have any acquaintances (family) in professional cinema in Iran or money so she/he can't inter it. So I decided to make short films as long as I can and I have sent them to foreign festivals, so I can continue and open the road of film making in this way. In addition maybe will have chance to become a great film maker in future due to my favorite short films. I have been making to short films up to now. And I made them my own expenses and without any help from any institutions or government, however my family and my friends have helped me.

Director Statement

In my country IRAN like many countries the girls have to be virgin until they can get married.
So many years ago one of the groom's family stands behind the door of bride and groom's room until they have sex and give the bloody handkerchief to groom's mother or aunt for being pride and happy, otherwise if the bride is not virgin and the handkerchief is not bloody, the wedding change to funeral ceremony and sometimes murder is happen.
Now almost there isn't this mores except in very small town or far-off places, but virginity is very important for groom and his family and the groom determines the heavy dowry, like (the number of girl's birthday) and the bride can takes the dowry whenever she wants and if the groom can't give it, the bride can put him to a jail, also she can be the owner of his property.
This story is about a girl who has lost her virginity because of making love, at mean time she wants to marry and make family but her suitors can't accept that the girl isn't a virgin so the girl for solving this problem must do the worse thing, it will be better justification for lake of virginity.
