Lake Desert, A documentary

Thousands of years ago, in the land now called the Central Desert of Iran, there was a big lake. What we have now as a desert, was a land covered with green, thin forest in which small and big lakes were connected through rivers.

But today, only memories are left from that nature and we decided to take a short trip to go through the memories and all that revolves around these ancient seas and its early coastal civilizations.

Director Biography - Babak Arjomandi

I was born in 1976, in Tehran, where I grew up, went to school, met my wife and began my professional career. We emigrated to Canada in 2008.

I started my first business in 1994 building custom DOS-based applications. For the past 25 years I’ve worked as a senior software architect/developer and entrepreneur, – I get to use my imagination and creativity to address “tech” challenges.

Given my love of nature, I took every opportunity to travel and hike mountains...

Photography and Film-making are more than passion for me. My first camera was my father's camera - a “Lubitel 2”. He gave it to me in 1988, on my 12th birthday. It became my companion in my travels, and documented my life for several years.

My other passion is woodworking – I have devoted a great deal of time and energy to mastering the skills that I need, and am now designing and creating one of a kind pieces, that range from the practical to the conceptual.
