Reza’s Story

Reza’s Story

Reza, from Iran, talks about a part of his life that got destroyed when his Uncle shot him in the leg. In the form of a short film.

‘This is not my whole life, it was a part of me that was destroyed and re-built. All my efforts were to show that all people live with a lot of pain and suffering, but few can return to normal life and rebuild themselves.

Being human is just life. It’s not doing, being human means helping to improve life in the direction of a better future for all beings in the world.

I hope that this experience, which turned into a short film, will be a small step in building a big world.’
