Declaration

film director

“The different, conflicting elements of a society in the throes of being rebuilt (prohibitions, lies, honour and vengeance) give the film the tone and the form of a psychological thriller. As a director, I wanted to tell the story of characters who bring to the screen the complexity of their lived experience, their struggles and their passions, to give the film a universal significance. For this is a film that cries out for and demands simple and unquestionable values: each and every human being’s right to love and to liberty.”
