Director Biography - Faramarz Ramezanian

Faramarz Ramezanian was born during the snowy winter of Tehran in 1987. Ever Since he could remember, he never knew a “home” of his own as he kept moving around in Iran like nomads for years. Perhaps that is why the stories he is eager to tell occur in streets & away from the comfort of home.
Growing up, he pursued his interest in the art of imagery & studied architecture & graphics in university.
He worked in the Iranian theatre industry for years, writing & directing various plays. His theatre works won him several national awards & praises from critics & audiences.
He eventually followed his deepest passion & finished his master's degree in filmmaking.
