During’an interview for Seriouslythe director said she was overwhelmed by the book and its main character: “Thanks to Herra, I was able to find myself closer to an Afghan family, in an environment that I would never have been able to discover in any other way. It was very surprising! It is a part of the world that is considered dangerous. We only hear information about attacks, bombings, which is, of course, a reality, but the book offers the daily life of a family and you therefore find similarities with yours, in Europe. For me, that was really fascinating and that’s also what I wanted to show in the film. »
