Film Director
A FILM DIRECTOR is a person who directs the making of a film . Generally, a film director controls a film's artistic and dramatic aspects and visualizes the screenplay (or script) while guiding the technical crew and actors in the fulfillment of that vision.

Paradise
PARADISE is the term for a place of timeless harmony. The Abrahamic faiths associate paradise with the Garden of Eden , that is, the perfect state of the world prior to the fall from grace , and the perfect state that will be restored in the World to Come . Paradisaical notions are cross-cultural, often laden with pastoral imagery, and may be cosmogonical or eschatological or both, often compared to the miseries of human civilization : in paradise there is only peace , prosperity , and happiness . Paradise is a place of contentment, a land of luxury and fulfillment. Paradise is often described as a "higher place", the holiest place, in contrast to this world , or underworlds such as Hell . In eschatological contexts, paradise is imagined as an abode of the virtuous dead . In Christian and Islamic understanding, Heaven is a paradisaical relief
