Mohsen Sakha

“My interest in making documentary films gives me ample opportunities to travel across the country. Every time I embark on a trip road appears as this profound metaphor for the journey. It reminds me of both ‘living’ and ‘leaving’. A road, for me, is the destination and the means to reach the destination as well.”

Mohsen Sakha is an Iran-based documentary filmmaker. He is a scriptwriter, director and producer as well. In his long career, he has made more than twenty documentary films, some of which have been screened in international film festivals such as 13th Cinema Verite International Festival, Iran and received critical acclaim. Oak Shout, Car Wash and Green Marriage are a few among his many endeavours.
