I was born in 1988

I was born in 1988


A series of executions of Iranian political prisoners began in the summer of 1988, following the end of the eight-year war between Iran and Iraq.
For nearly three decades, I have been preoccupied with the coincidence of this massacre and my birth in August 1988. The prisoners had no specific graves and were all buried in mass graves, and the most significant mass grave was called Khavaran. The mothers of these prisoners are a symbol of resistance and freedom, and they are called the mother of Khavaran.
This film is an experimental documentary and a personal essay based on these events.
