"I think Bam 6.6 is a fantastic documentary film about the humanistic cohesiveness of mankind all over the world, regardless of ones political, geographical and/or religious limits and restrictions."
"We, Iranians, have always been proud of our culture and literary contributions. One great Persian poet wrote:
All men are members of the same body,
Created from one essence.
If fate brings suffering to one member,
The others cannot stay at rest.
You who remain indifferent,
To the burden of pain of others,
Do not deserve to be called Human. ( Sheikh Sa'di Shirazi , 1184-1291 AD)"
"In 2003, we witnessed a tragic disaster in Bam, where a sudden huge suffering surrounded and shook thousands of lives. People in Iran and everywhere else were in great shock. But people worldwide rushed to the aid of those who were devastated by this tragedy, in spite of the current geopolitical circumstances. I wished Sa'di were alive!"
"We had always been taught in our schools about the above Poem, but I had never quite understood its depth the way I experienced it in Bam."
"The Bam 6.6 movie, with great professionalism, depicts compassion, friendship, and love between people. It is heart-tearing to see what really happened, and it is encouraging to see how people helped each other as they felt they were all members of the same body , and they cannot stay at rest while others are suffering."
"Bam 6.6 shows the strong bond between humankind, and for me it is like a live interpretation of Sa'di's poem. It is a great film and I can imagine that everyone who knows of Sa'di and knows about Bam, will support the movie. We should have a copy of the film on display in our homes beside the Sa'di's and Hafez's books to show to family, friends, children and generations to come, as humanity and this movie would stay alive forever, like the great Persian poet Sheikh Sa'di Shirazi."
