“West-east conversation” is based on eastern thoughts and poems of Goethe in West-east diwan. When he was thinking and composing these poems and thoughts, could he ever imagine a future when an animation artist tries to illustrate his journey through culture and history? Αn animation artist who comes from the origins of his most favorable poet, Hafiz… So this project is a walk through time, which starts in the past with Hafiz, continues with Goethe and ends now with an Iranian animator.
