Personal Quote:

[observation, 2014] I'm really optimistic about the future of Iranian cinema because of all these young and talented filmmakers...What makes me hopeful is this pool of young filmmakers can use all-digital cameras to make their own movies. There was a time when the government had a monopoly on all the filmmaking equipment. But right now you don't have to go to the government to make your films. See more »

Trivia:

In February 2010 he was denied permission to leave Iran to participate in the panel discussion on 'Iranian Cinema: Present and Future. Expectations inside and outside of Iran' during the World Cinema Fund Day at the 60th Berlinale. See more »
