In Iran the marriage ceremony is a 3000-year-old tradition. Traditions such as bride-kidnapping by the groom on horseback, or the carrying of a rifle on the wedding night have only recently been separated from the ceremony. The modern ceremony is generating its own traditions, with the filming of a marriage using giant cranes, or live broadcasting with reports as if from a football match.
Most of the films that I have made since 2003 have been centered on similar issues. Attempting to depict the relationship between ideology and technology – [Imam Internet] (2005) or between fashion and history, [All Restrictions End] (2009) and in this film, images of marriage as well as searching for a creative form for expressing such issues in pictures - have been highly challenging issues for me so far in this profession.
