Director's View

In the winter of 2006, in the heights of Kodir Forest, after shooting a scene of TRADITION OF KILLING LOVERS, an insisting driver of Natural Resources Organization made me to change my mind to take an arduous road across the Visar Forest together. On the way, he was continuously talking about a moving story happened in the area, emphasizing that it could be a great subject for a film. Suddenly he stopped the car in the middle of the forest. When he began walking, I followed him. Then we reached iron fences. It was just like a cemetery. I walked to the grave and the driver hinted to the gravestone. Reading what was written on the stone, I was thrilled. “A seven month old girl named Sareh, her eleven year old brother and their mother were shot to death by a cruel father.”
