Next Life






Next Life
Experimental (2008)

Next life or in better words “Life after death” is one of the biggest questions in my mind specially after I lost my mother in 2006.
Like “Wind blows wherever it wants”, “Painters” and “Lovers”, “Next life” shows the way I look at this world and how thing could be in a relation. There is a  very tiny border line between similarities and differences, which is often not easily recognized.
“Next life” unlike the normal way of living which starts from life to death, starts from death to life and goes in the opposite direction. Next life is a single shot movie in 1 minutes and 40 seconds.

“It takes creativity and art to make such beautiful image from a scene this ugly scene.” Abbas Kiarostami, 3rd workshop, Iran, Tehran
