Example text

For instance, in The Travellers, you use mystical allegory. In fact, this film seems to incorporate most of your stylistic and thematic preoccupations – the veiled identity of women, passages of time, mysticism – while focusing on the themes of death and predestination. The mirror is one of the recurring tropes. Could you explain the significance of the mirror people bring to the house in The Travellers?

The most recent trend, according to what we have witnessed as foreign guests at the Fajr Film Festival, seems to be the problems of the young generation, crime, drugs, etc. What do you think about this movement? How realistic is what is shown? There is a fashion to make films about women, and women film-makers also explore these subjects.
