  • Hessam Hosseini

    In the middle of the war, a sniper ambushed in an old factory. He wants to shoot an enemy soldier but he sees that soldier is thirsty and drinking the water. Sniper hesitates for a few seconds and in the moment he decides to trigger, killed by a bullet.
    I would like to thank you for this opportunity. This was so incredible to be a part of your festival. I wish I could be in Turkey and participate in this event.

    best regards
