Director Statement

Studying literature and reading dramas always interested me, and when I saw an opportunity back then in 2018 to perform in a role on stage, I rushed for it and tried my best to achieve it. I did it, and since then, I have never taken a day off from the realm of theater and cinema. Acting and directing in this realm make me satisfied and give me meaning in my life. I regard story-telling as an effort to understand the truth, and while I believe the truth can never be told the way it is, through art we may reach its edge.
I’ll try my best to put my artistic crafts closer than before to this curvature.
