Director’s note :

“ Akbar For God Sake , Don’t Die Before Me ! “ is my fourth short film . This film is made by DV-CAM system in “ Sabzevar ” , which is a city in khorasan state of IRAN .
I was born in “ Sabzevar “ .The location of my previous film was in this historical city eighter .
I always liked to create a dreamy subjective atmosphere which include Iranian quality eighter. This film is based on a novel by “Ebrahim Golestan” ( an Iranian great author who is living in U.K ) … I borrow it completely free .
If we want to talk about the construction , we understand that each sequence is completely different and a part from the others , I would like this film to be as experimental as it is storic.
