My father held a gun

A passionate, storytelling show with live cinematic music about war and peace, acts of heroism, and the love for life. Winner of the Amsterdam Fringe Festival Gold Award 2017. Iranian Sahebdivani and Israeli Rodan combine a great sense of humor with the urge to tell sincere and meaningful stories. By trying to answer the question “why do men make war?”, they take their audience on a trip through space and time.

 Directed by: Vasile Nedelcu.
