Film notes

I read ‘“The blue-eyed boy” story in 2006. Before that time, I thought of making a film with a monochrome point of view, but not black and white.
Fortunately, I read the book and it compelled me even more to make a film with a blue monochrome point of view., then I decided to adapt it into a script.

I wrote many drafts and tried to really elevate the script for this blue monochrome point of view. I wanted to expand this from a simple children's story into something deeper that would appeal to an adult audience as well.

I tried to give depth to all the characters without forgetting that the story is about a boy with blue monochrome eyes. After many rewrites I asked Saeed Ghorbanian, a thoughtful and genius writer/poet to collaborate with me. His help with the dialogue was invaluable and he even wrote a poem for a sequence in the middle of the film.

Shooting in a village with a cast that include old women and a small boy was challenging. I was very lucky to have had the opportunity to make this film. During the process many amazing things happened, a great DOP came on board along with great actors and actresses. And I was able to obtain the rights, I am so grateful. I am very happy with the way the film turned out, and am even happier to share it with the world.
