A usual family morning begins to unravel when hidden tensions emerge.
“I grew up in a really tiny place on the border of Azerbaijan with my grandparents during the civil war and collapse of the Soviet Union. We didn’t have electricity, so I actually never really got to watch films when I was younger. In terms of my filmmaking techniques today, I think that helped me to observe people and be more involved in real life instead of just staring at some screen all the time. A lot of characters in my films come from my early life in that very small town and it’s a huge inspiration to me.”
