THIRD YEAR – LOS ANGELES
Born in Tehran, Gharavi is a BAFTA and Sundance-nominated writer/director and showrunner focused on delivering authentic stories lensed with an impeccably wrought perspective. Having worked in war zones and in guerrilla filmmaking, Gharavi marries her indomitable spirit with a distinct talent to deliver performances and manage beautifully observed stories. Her debut feature, I Am Nasrine, was nominated for a BAFTA and she’s a TV showrunner, engaged on her first TV series, an Icelandic detective noir with an intriguing twist.
Gharavi is an academic, teaching filmmaking and was recently awarded an MIT Fellowship. She is represented by Independent Talent in the UK and Gersh in Los Angeles, her two home bases. Her next move sees her escaping to Italy… though, the future remains unwritten! Her next film, a feature documentary, Tribalism is Killing Us resulted from visiting Angola State Prison, a film about othering and difference, due out in 2021.
