I knew Mahak before. I knew Mr Nader Sharifi, husband of Mrs Saeede Qods for several years. Three years before this, we had made a short documentaryabout Mahak with Rakhshan Bani Etemad, Mojtaba Mir Tahmasb and Amir Esbati. Perhaps it was because of all these acquaintances that it was suggested to me to make a film about Mrs. Qods. The film was shot at several meetings over a year. Among the trips of Mrs. Qods to the foreign countries and my job troubles for the simultaneous production of the film “Tabarestanis”, which was also for the Karestan collection. From the very beginning, I realized that Mrs Qods priority is Mahak. So wherever the camera was interfering with their activity, they asked us to stop filming. In the days Mrs. Qods works; she work energetically until the very last moments, and after that she usually get home and get up to their family and mother’s affairs. So our camera in Mahak was always looking for in her, and most of the times there was not much opportunity for some coordination. The film’s edition took a lot of time, and Ahmed Vafaii made it with patience. Working in Mahak always feels good to me. I am delighted that this film has given me an opportunity to spend days in Mahak.
