Director Statement

During the process of making the movie, I made the necklaces used in the film with the real tooth to get closer and understand the main character. To accomplish this, I went through all the steps which the girl is doing in the movie.Polishing the tooth was initially disgusting, but as soon as the first teeth were completed, it became usual practice for me. This is the exact thing that happens to the human violence process. Thousands of photographs and videos of the civilians' slaughter, which are the result of this wildness are published daily, but tremendous violence occurs the moment the human spirit dies. Savagery generates children from its breed out of innocent people who are maltreating worse than what happened for them, and this endless cycle of violence will continue forever
