Reza Dolatabadi, the director of the multi-award winning Khoda, wanted each frame of his graduation film to look like a painting. His labor of love took over 2 years to complete – as he had to painstakingly create 6000 lush paintings to make his 5 minute film.
The animated film has been described as a “psychological thriller” by its maker. It depicts the terrifying struggles an individual undergoes to escape the confines of a claustrophobic prison. Except that this prison is unlike any other. The ending of the film is left open for interpretation by the viewer.
