“Roads of Ithriyah is a transformation in the discussion of war and also in storytelling: that smooth, harmonious integration of visual art, poetry, stream of consciousness, and time/geographical existence. It takes real skill to tackle deep philosophical questions with such minimalism. Shayan’s performance was phenomenal. Congratulations on the premiere of this gem.” – Aixa K.
“It lingered with me - and continued to linger - two days later.” – Christie M.
“The photography was magnificent and there were lots of lovely details (like the fact that our protagonist was in his military wear in the domestic scenes!). Terrence Malick is my favorite director (auteur) at the moment, so you'll guess that I loved the voice-over and the poetic feeling.” – Kari T.
“Inspiring and illuminating” – John L.
