Pazira's mere presence was certainly cause for many questions in the midst of people who could claim her as their own, yet whose lives have been totally circumscribed by a fate she escaped when she was in her teens.
Out of everyone on the Farsi-speaking film crew, Pazira alone speaks Pushtu, and was able to make connections with women who would otherwise have had no access to the intriguing events going on in their midst.
The experience has inspired Pazira in terms of her own future goals; her apprenticeship under one of the world's most respected filmmakers, after all, was a priceless education that she is itching to put to use.

 2001 NNYF Film Festival
This program was organized by the Film Society of Lincoln Center in collaboration with the Argentine Film Institute (INCAA) and the Chancellery of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Buenos Aires, with the support of the Consulate General of Argentina in New York.

The film is an accurate portrayal of the period, a summary of the struggles for supremacy in those Wild West days, seen through the archetypical story of a gaucho gone bad though no apparent fault of his own.

There are some similarities for example the opening human hunt for example and the general attitude of ape to man, but other than this it is a new film.

Bluntly, 2001 is one of the best science-fiction films made to date, if not the very best.
And although it is misunderstood by many, and respectively underrated, it is considered one of the best films of all time and I'll have to agree.
While it is a long film, and sometimes slows down, it has to be in order to accurately portray the journey of man. It's not a subject that would have faired well in a shorter film, faster paced feature.
