Director’s Statement
When I began work on the screenplay, I had the intention of using all cinematic devices and formulas but refrain from following one. I wanted to start a new movement in Iranian Cinema.

As a director of Photography and cameraman I had participated in many of the innovative and experimental films and I was seeing us gradually repeating ourselves. I wanted to write a script that was not bound by any restrictions and I wasn’t even aiming for the classical form.Essentially I was in search of a puzzle (each part of which could be complete in itself) and to reach a universal content by putting this puzzle together. I wasn’t much concerned about the overall dramatic structure rather my concern was more about the pieces in and of themselves.

The screenplay unfolds in a few villages and one cemetery, each with their own story and chain of events and the two main characters of the film act as a conduit linking them together and in pursuit of an overall understanding.

The film takes place in both an unidentifiable period and location. I didn’t want it to be bound to a particular place. I believe the story of my film can take place any where in the world where domination exists as control. Towards this goal we tried to come up with a rather primitive new form, derived from local costumes and traditional architecture of our country. We stayed away from identifying with a particular period or location and that’s why you see horses and motorcycles together in a scene or guns next to primitive weapons.

My intention was to reach a new meaning through the illogical and unreal elements in the film. My assumption was that when the mind is confronted with a lack of logical connection between events, it would seek out a new meaning, for example when all the inhabitants of a village are begging and since this is an unrealistic proposition, it encourages the viewer towards an analytical approach towards the symbolism.

In this film, I’m dealing with people who are dominated and don’t do anything to challenge their domination. People whose fate and destiny is decided by others who subjugate and rule them.

I wanted to make this film for a long time and by working as a director of photography in the course of five years, I managed to put aside its primary budget. I am the investor, producer, writer, director, director of photography and set designer of this film and I have endured a lot of hardship towards making this film. There are a number of young directors in Iran who have attained international recognition and often times their projects don’t have financial support, independent filmmakers who carry their own financial burden themselves and I am one of them.
