What if you watch a film and whenever you pause it, you face a painting? This idea inspired Reza Dolatabadi to make KHODA. Over 6000 paintings were painstakingly produced during two years to create a five minutes film that would meet high personal standards. KHODA is a psychological thriller; a student project which was seen as a ‘mission impossible’ by many people but eventually proved possible!
