In 1990, I was making a documentary on the cultivation of saffron, and I tried to portray the cultivation process of this plant through the people of Khorasan. When making the film, I had demands for the arrangement of each scene, some of which were opposed by the farmers, until they stopped filming. However, the film was finished, but it was clear to me that the reason for our struggle was a perception of the world that was different from my understanding. 0It was so meaningful that I could not forget it, until I wrote and made the script, “The Leaf of Life.”
