The Epic of the Lovers: Mafia, God & the Citizens

Two intermingled narratives melt into images to construct the story. The first consists of personal diary. The second narrative consists of a body of questions. The diary starts with a personal fascination with a roleplaying game highly popular among Iranian youth, ‘Mafia, God, and the citizens’, that the author is about to turn into a film. It continues with reflections on the making of the film and the author's subjective and emotional reactions to political elements, iconic images, and symbols emerging during the summer of 2009 in Iran.
