Tahmina Rafaella director and Katayoon Shahabi producer tell us about the experience of the Biennale College, with its strict budget rules and timing. The intensity of the film is intact though as Tahmina confirms, and its power as well.
Banu: While the Second Nagorno-Karabakh war rages on far away from Baku, Azerbaijan, Banu has four days to find someone to support her in court against her influential soon to be ex-husband, Javid. He is trying to get full custody of their son Ruslan by claiming that Banu suffers from psychiatric issues. Banu embarks on a journey to find someone to help her in a society in which everyone’s attention is preoccupied with the ongoing war.
