The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.

A retrospective family history, set against the backdrop of the turbulent events in Iran in 1978. Using a mosaic-like collage of old photographs and archival footage, Bahman tells the story of an unrequited love that led him into the centre of the revolutionary events. In the end, his sacrifice personifies the thousands of young men who never returned home.
