Ali Sherafat is an Iranian filmmaker based in Washington, D.C.
Filmmaking in nature is an Art form that brings people together, opens up new horizons on new discussions and let us see matters that we previously could not. Filmmaking’s massive capability in covering an immense range of topics from global warming, social movements such as Black Lives Matter to conceptual perspectives like one's journey of life in “Tree of Life” demonstrates the unlimited power of this medium.
This is why filmmaking, my most desirable passion, has driven me so far in life. Watching my mother writing shows and directing plays as a kid, convinced me that telling stories is what I want to do in life and ever since it’s as if I, myself, am living a film of my own.
