About this submission

After ransacking an island monastery, two siblings wake up trapped in their sinking campervan. As the tide rolls ever closer, they find themselves being torn apart by history, hallucination, and a sacred stone.

I am a British-Iranian filmmaker from Newcastle, England. In 2022, I was selected for the 'shortFLIX' scheme by Sky Arts and Creative UK to make my debut funded genre-short "High Tide" for broadcast on Sky Arts and NowTV in 2023. I am interested in telling surreal, intertextual working-class genre stories and find myself deeply inspired by the works of Robert Graves, Leonora Carrington, Jan Švankmajer, Věra Chytilová and Nicolas Roeg.
