Personal Quote:

Wrote a film-script (Vegatarian Draqula) based on a painting by himself in 1989. the work is in the art-collection of Bahman Maghsoudlou to whom he often codes as his mentor in Cinema education. He has repeatedly mentioned to want to make this picture with Maghsoudlou in 2009. See more »
