In summer 2018 I travelled to different towns and villages in Iran to find an appropriate setting for the plot I had in mind. Initially, the main motivation for finding a concrete and original point of view which was not influenced by other Iranian female directors in my research, was challenging. I explored different locations and took numerous photographs from different sites, villages, and daily routines of people. Surprisingly however, my explorations led my mind to another direction and my enthusiasm for experiencing new methods of video representation, and storytelling ended up with the present depictions. Indeed, my research process transformed into openness to experimentation and to pushing back the boundaries of the knowledge I had obtained through reading books. Soon I found myself in an uncertain and conflicted situation regarding what I already knew.
