Director Statement

I am an atheist living in IRAN who spend almost all of his free time
watching movies . I like challenging people on their beliefs . I like
situations that involves two person confronting , sort of a “duet” . I like the
dichotomy between who people really are or want to be and what they
are in their subconscious . so I love getting subjective and using dreams .
This film is powered by my preoccupations , my concerns in different
matters , my beliefs and most importantly my taste in cinematography
and lighting .
Making “Recurrence” , at any aspect , was a personal experience for me to
explore my world as a filmmaker .
