The collapse of the family is traumatic and the cinema is culture-creating

The movie "In the embrace of the tree" directed by Babak Khajeh Pasha and produced by Institute for the Intellectual Development of Children & Young Adults will be screened at the 41st Fajr Film Festival.

According Kanoon General Directorate for Public Relations and International Affairs, Babak Khaje Pasha, the director of the movie "In the Embrace of the Tree", said about the formation of the idea of this work: The story is about a part of my concerns that had formed in my mind in the past few years and is the most important and biggest It is the family section. What I feel we should spend more time on today; Because it is the base from which all reforms can take place. Whatever we criticize can definitely be corrected from the family.

He added: Considering that the emergence of the divorce crisis and this collapse in the family can cause a lot of damage to the country in the coming years, I decided to enter this topic and make a film based on this concern. I started researching and came up with this idea and decided to make a film about family breakdown from the point of view of two children.

Referring to the audience of this film, Khajeh Pasha said: Children of today's generation are very different and I think they understand a lot. The problem is that we think they are children and they don't understand. If they understand a lot, they see our fights, they see our concerns and family problems and... The film has tried to show very refined and clean these crises and the impact of these children in line with this collapse, how they are damaged and affected. In fact, "In the embrace of the tree" is both a film for children and a film about children.

The director of the movie " In the embrace of the tree " stated: The movie sometimes enters the personal world of children and sees the problems of adults from their point of view, and sometimes it moves away from them and sees the world of children from the point of view of adults. The movie is a social melodrama about family and it can definitely be effective for this age group, especially teenagers.

He said about the cooperation with Kanoon: I am proud that " In the embrace of the tree " is a product of Institute for the Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults, and more importantly, Institute for the Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults is influential in the cinema of this country and the cinema is somehow indebted to the center. Kanoon's films made Iranian cinema to be seen in the world. The fact that this film is a product of Kanoon is an important event for me.

Khaje Pasha continued: I would like this film to be seen by the people. Maybe it can eliminate part of the family's problems. I hope to all departments that Simorgh will be the owner, because the children worked with their hearts and were honestly and lovingly involved in the production of this film.

The director of the movie "In the embrace of the tree" said: cinema is entertainment, but our works cannot entertain the audience so that the audience sits and watches the film. In my opinion, the first problem is that dramatic works have weaknesses in which the element of entertainment is not formed.

He added: In world cinema, it is very rare to see something bad happen to the protagonists at the end, everyone tries to at least have a hopeful ending, especially in Hollywood cinema. But we have moved a lot towards gray cinema. In the cinema we have, maybe 90% of the audience will be disappointed if they enter the cinema with their families.

Khajeh Pasha stated: We must produce films that allow families to go and watch movies together. Children should go and watch movies with their parents. Most of our films are designed in such a way that perhaps a large part of the family does not follow the story, and that is why the cinema goes down. Entering into the production of family dramas will make the family audience enter the cinema, and this will boost the cinema and we will be able to make a positive impact, while working to improve some issues in the society.

He said: The concern that I, and certainly many filmmakers have, is the boom in screenings, and we need to think about it. I hope that a plan will be made so that the cinema is included in the society's basket of goods and it is a compulsory commodity. Work on social culture and his family wants to go to the cinema.

In the end, Khajeh Pasha said: "Working with Kanoon is an honor for me, because it has had an impact on cinema and showing Iranian cinema to the world cinema." Institute for the Intellectual Development of Children & Young Adults has worked as a showcase in the world and is valuable and deserves praise. I hope that my film will be placed next to great people like Abbas Kiarostami.

The film "In the embrace of the tree" directed by Babak Khajeh Pasha is a joint product of the Institute for the Intellectual Development of Children & Young Adults and the Soureh Cinema Organization, which is participating in the 41st Fajr Film Festival.
