Director Statement

These days, Human kind is suffering loneliness because of the modern and mechanical life and people feel this loneliness much more during the Covid-19 pandemic. On the other hand, this lockdown let animals feel freedom, so they enter into human territories. In fact, this event reminds people that all the creatures need to feel freedom and have basic rights. The idea of this animated film is taken from a real journal photo related to the women’s limitations in Iran. In this photo, the heads of the female clothing dummies are the swans heads and necks as women are not allowed to draw men’s attention. This film is an attempt to create a dreamy scene that women dance freely and express their love. Also, this dance is one of the most important ballet dances of the masterpiece of Swan Lake, Tch. Unfortunately, in Iran the performance of ballet is not allowed for women and even dancing and singing on the scenes are a desire and dream.
Moreover, this animation has been produced through the remote filmmaking , which is a new challenge for the director and animator in these times of quarantining and social distancing.
