← Get back to the question


I’m quite critical of politicians that’s how I am because I started working in a political environment in Iran, my country, when I was 16 so I’m quite critical when it comes to politicians. Here I try to come with an open mind and try to understand them but on the other hand for me it is really important that we have the politicians and we can hear their voice but you can always hear their voice, they are everywhere. They comment on everything, they have a direct influence on our lives, but how do the others feel? How the decisions of politicians directly affect their lives. So I like to work in parallel to show both sides and of course it is a bit challenging. And of course it’s not Iran, so the politicians are different, but in the end politicians are politicians, it’s all about politics.
