Director Biography - Amir .G. Razi

Director, Scriptwriter and Producer

Born on January 30, 1960 in Tehran, he is a graduate of theater from the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Tehran and began his professional activities as director and script writer.

Before attending college he made a documentary film titled “Blood in the flowers of the carpet” about a traditional/historical ceremonial observance, winning him awards in cultural film festivals.

In 1989, Razi immigrated to the Netherlands to study filmmaking. Two years later, he made his first short film (The red Fish) in the Netherlands for which he won various awards. During his studies, he also made documentaries mainly on the subject of immigration and cultural differences between the East and the West.

In 1999, he made the film (A Rose from Africa) for VARA (a television channel in the Netherlands) which brought him 12 reputable international awards. He was nominated as best script writer in the Netherlands for the said film which also drew the attention of the European Union, commissioning him to write a script about the history and culture of the gypsies in Europe, in an attempt for the revival of their culture.

In 2000, Razi was invited to the US by the United Nations and later in a ceremony in Barcelona, Spain, received three special UN awards from David Garcia.

In 2000, Razi was invited to Iran for the screening of his films in the Fajr International Film Festival and received several awards for the film ‘A Rose from Africa’. He enthusiastically stayed in Iran to make films in his homeland.

Director Statement

Grotesque, a form inherently distorted as it crosses the boundaries of the ordinary and while being comic it can be scary.

We are living in a society in which life is more of a risk constantly displaying a horrendous crash before us. And we are delighted with hope, however, we mark our own demise under the feet of creatures we ourselves have embellished. Humans are born in the East but they don't die quickly, unexpectedly or inadvertently but gradually move towards their death. ...Amir Razi.
