I use humour a lot. My foundation is tragic, but my appearance is humorous.
I used to believe that people are only born once, but now I feel I have been reborn, like I was given a new life. I see myself as a child, full of energy and hope.
I love music, I make films with music, I eat with music, I sleep with music, I think with music. Music makes me dream; it strengthens my creativity.
For me, it's better to live without looking over your shoulder, worrying about who is controlling your phone, maybe poisoning your food.
I'm free - but I'm also not free because there are millions of young people living in Iran. A filmmaker can only do a little.
