Mohsen Mehri Deravi is an Iranian filmmaker. This is his first film, which he categorizes as “surreal”.

Filmmaking conditions in Iran are very difficult and subject to intense supervision. Imprisoned and tortured as a result of making this film, he spent many months away from his family. Yet he is still willing to risk his life in order to share his work with others.
