As tragic and heart-breaking is the self-immolation and death of Sahar Khodayari, her departure serves as deep sorrow; A loss which penetrates into our hearts, and importantly, starts living inside our soul.
As part of the human society, and above all, as a human, I can’t stop thinking about the dimensions of this very tragedy. Be it social or spiritual or else, it deeply affects our lives down to every core and cell.
As a matter of fact, I’d like to think of “Blue Girl” as an individual soul; one who has a deep character within.
There is a reason why I grew deepest concerns to think of it as the main-core subject of my movie. That is, the truth about Sahar Khodayari, her life story, who she was, and what she did, was majorly disrupted by the government and the media. As a result, she was made a person with no “past”.
So, I decided to make this film about “Blue Girl” to give her a “past” she deserved, and above all, a “truth” to who she was and what she did.
