Artist’s Statement:

Since childhood, my hand has always held a pencil, endlessly putting to paper the characters and images that race through my imagination. Through the years, as my creativity and artistic skills developed, I longed to use movement to bring my art to life and so turned my attention to 2D animation. Since Persian folktales were the original birthplace of my childhood fantasies, I have decided to create a film about one of my favourite characters, a Persian folk hero named Nokhodi.
