Freshteh is many things; director, globetrotter and keen surfer to name a few. Born in Iran and raised in Sweden she is a director of contrasts, with a MA in Film at Sydney College of the Arts. Setting out to break barriers with her work and to find new points of connection through storytelling, her work often breathes a certain mystique, giving the simplest projects a heightened feeling of style and thought.
Besides commercials, she is working on her first feature film project. An autobiographical tale following her journey back to Iran for the first time since she left as a child. Using her poetic and visually idiomatic style to depict a yet unseen reality of surfing in the middle east.
