Director / Producer

Marjan Tehrani

I grew up between many colorful cultures. My childhood backdrops were race tracks, hospital visiting rooms, Persian BBQ’s and epic sunsets in the Bay Area. I have a deep love for connecting with people and capturing rich, captivating stories that are full of emotion and truth and making connections that last beyond the frame.
