Director Statement

“On Underground” is my First Documentary Directing Experience, I Directed it when I was eighteen years old. young generation in Iran and their point of view to life is one of the most important Subject for me to make movies about. 80th and 90th generation in Iran are Completely in opposite side of their parents, no matter if their parents are religious or open-minded type, they are not look like them. They have Different value, and its make it hard for young’s to be accepted in Society or evens Family. In this documentary I try to Show young generation and their point of view to life. although it’s a little bit hard to be dancer in Islamic republic of Iran, but this generation will always find way out for them self. on underground is Story of 2 people fighting for their forbidden Dreams.
