Also join us for a pizza lunch meet and greet with Ms. Rezaee on Wednesday, March 20, from 12:00 to 1:00pm in CERIA 365.

Maaman Rezaee is a US-based Iranian filmmaker, writer and director. Her work focuses on issues of exile, geopolitics and interracial and intercultural relationships.
She has written and directed a number of short films which have been screened locally and internationally, including Family of Too Many (2018) which received the Award of Merit for narrative shorts at University Film and Video Association and Best Short Screenplay Award at Diamond Film Festival.
Born and raised in Shiraz, Iran, Rezaee began her creative practice with studies in music, dance and painting. She later moved to Tehran to attend Baha’i Institute of Higher Education, an underground University for Baha’is, a religious minority in Iran who are not allowed to attend state universities. She studied architecture for 4 years in BIHE before moving to the United States to finish her bachelor degree in fine arts at University at Albany. At UA, she concentrated on photography, video arts and urban design, all of which play a major role in her style as a filmmaker.
She received her MFA from Temple University at 2016 and currently teaches screenwriting and production courses as a full-time lecturer at Rowan University.
She’s working on her first feature script that tells the story of an Iranian woman raised in a transracial adopted family whose quest to find her parents, makes her a vessel to carry stories of lives and losses in the time of the Iranian Islamic Revolution.
