Director's Biography

Saman Hosseinpuor was born in Saqqez, Iran in January 1993. He started acting on stage when he was 14. He also worked as a journalist for Hamshahri. He has made more than 10 short films and got lots of international and national awards.

Director's Statement

The Film is based on the story 'The Other' written by Arthur Schnitzler'.'The Other' is the first silent Indo-Irani short film in the history of cinema. It was shot on Arri Alexa in Kurdistan, and produced by Ravinder Dhaka Telefilms, India and Kurdistan Pictures, Iran. The sole aim of Ravinder Dhaka Telefilms is to support filmmakers in war-torn and economically backward countries. Mr. Dhaka is going to shoot his next project in Afghanistan.

Producer's Note- Ravinder Dhaka

I had seen a film made by the director in Europe. After watching the film I contacted the director. The project was at pre production stage and he didn't have enough funds to complete it. I couldn't control myself after going through the story and went to Kurdistan (-5 Degrees) from Mumbai (30 Degrees) to support the project and stayed there for one month until it was finished.
