Last night was the cast and crew party for Seeking Valentina, a short film that I was honored to play a nice supporting role in, at Lyfe Kitchen in West Hollywood.
What I loved about working on this project is that it bucks stereotypes of Iranian-Americans. This gripping psychological thriller was directed by Armin Nasseri and it revolves around an Iranian-American writer, Benjamin (Ali Bavarian), in the pangs of grief, who takes in a mysterious tenant named Valentina (Kristin West). When she mysteriously disappears, it is for the audience to decide if she a ghost, a hallucination, a dream or a runaway. I’m very excited to say that Seeking Valentina has garnered national and international attention for its unique story-telling structure, gender-balanced casting and production team. I was honored to be a part of this amazing project and big thanks to my amazing manager Matt Chassin for making it happen!
The film also stars Srinivasa Kapavarapu, Melahd Gibson, Diane Silvester and Emily Heffner. More info at www.SeekingValentina.com
