“The idea came from life”

Thursday, April 12

The Home from “International Competition” was screened at Cinemaximum City’s Nişantaşı, with the participation of the director Asghar Yousefinejad. The film tells the story of a testament, and the director talked about the film: “The idea came from real life; they were things I saw around me. There are such lives in every part of the world. We did rehearsals for three months and filmed it in two weeks.” One person from the audience commented that the dialogues in the film were very much natural, to which Yousefinejad replied: “There was no improvisation. But I didn’t put any dialogue in the film that I hadn’t heard in real life either. I picked all of them from life itself; that’s why it was so natural.” The director also talked about the cast: “There are no professional film actors in the film; some of them are theater actors, some are students, and the rest were ordinary people.”
