Mohammad Rezā Aslāni, a distinguished Iranian filmmaker, navigates his artistic journey through a circular motion, oscillating between the rich tapestry of Iranian ancient heritage, historical events, implied mystic concepts, and the forward-looking modernistic language of contemporary cinema. He delves into the historical narrative surrounding ancient artifacts, rituals, and Iranian cities, akin to the myriad shards of a shattered mirror collectively known as Iran. As Aslāni meticulously reassembles these fragmented elements, his works take on a coherent sequence, leading to the second phase—a cinematic expression of social-political critique. Aslāni insists on addressing the lost essence of this narrated history, raising pertinent questions about the retrieval of this overlooked archive.
