It was 2014, Our film was part of International Uranium Film Festival, Amman. Soon after organizer realized that festival in Amman may not be possible or organizing this event is not an easy task. After many months of debate, discussion and confusion, festival dates were announced… Festival had some screening in west bank in Palestine, unfortunately, a minister was killed around that dates. And screening in West bank was canceled…

But before the festival, we had film screening in a village (where govt have plan to mine uranium) near Amman. So we went there…
