“We were working on a film on the borders of Bazargan between Iran and Turkey, it was evening and the sun was almost setting. A security guard was on duty, in my heart, I said, “How lovely it must be to be able to view the sunset every evening”. I watched him for a few seconds, my friends were all gone and strayed far from me. I kept on observing the soldier. I could tell he felt uneasy, discomfort and grief from the way he walked. But when he saw me, a smile erupted on his lips. When I saw him, I answered with a smile and a wave. He waved back and I noticed the way he was walking had become stronger and more powerful; I realized that he had become a completely different person. I have to tell the cinema, “Thank you.” For allowing me to view the joy and dreams of humans from up close, and visit various locations in order to perceive human emotions”.
