As tragic and heart-breaking is the self-immolation and death of Sahar Khodayari, her departure serves as deep sorrow which penetrates into our hearts and starts living inside our soul.
As part of a 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.
However, I’d like to think of Blue Girl as an individual soul, with a deep character within.
What made me think of it as a subject for a movie, and a serious concern as a filmmaker, was that the truth about Sahar Khodayari, her life story, who she was, and what he did, was majorly disrupted by the government and the media. 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 “truth” to who she was and what she did.
