Sun, Me, Shadow






Sun, Me, Shadow
Experimental  (2007)

During  Mr. Abbas Kiarostami’s second film-making workshop in Iran two subjects were set for making films : Tree and Taxi
Sun, Me, Shadow has been made during this workshop and concentrates on trees and how slowly they grow without us realising.
Although the main idea talks about years, the rhythm of the film is very fast. What happens under two trees in 17 hours has been shrinked into 3 minutes. People live under these big trees without attention to how slowly they grow and how many generations have lived under their shadows.

Every second
trees are changing
from what they used to be
and we don’t notice
Maybe they are grand
maybe they are calm
and peaceful.
