Pictures from the posters of one our previous short films, Delicate/Narin. The filming of this film turned out to be a funny story which is the subject of another caption.
"Tiny arms flung around my neck, I enjoy a moment of peace. I often find myself thinking about the word "peace" - not the inner one anymore it seems, because I've felt at peace with myself for a long time now. I’d often use self-scrutiny in my 20s. I'm now quite easy on myself." " I am doing what I care about. That is when some feelings start to kick in. I like to think of my work as a platform, a dimension, a space where I can share the sentiments, incidents, and thoughts of humans. I've heard and seen many stories. Perhaps too many. The little one is sleeping soundly. Crimes against humanity. My stomach twisted, I scrape my hair back, and take a deep breathe. I often write comedy. I like to see the funny side of everyday dilemmas. I often forget about any possible traumas of the past. I never let anything to get to me in the long-term. That is why I forget to mention certain incidents when asked about my memories. Not important. But when there is a trend, it is important. When particularly children, women, and animals are abused or harrassed, there is a problem. Days slide into weeks, and weeks into months. I have a pleasantly ordinary, and surprisingly extraordinary life, and I want everyone to have their basic needs met, and have a full life. At some moments of bliss, those images of victims of war occur in my head. As if I have swallowed something bitter after a dessert. Today, many of you will see the videos of people from Aleppo who might be dead by now."
