After more than a decade of working in cinema and theatre in Iran, Reza moved to London and studied in The London Film School, where he specialized in editing and graduated with an MA with distinction.
Reza has since taken up editing as his profession and has edited many films including three feature-length films, one of which being “Utopia”, that has been long-listed for the 88th Academy awards, as the 2016 Afghanistan foreign film submission and is the story of a torn-apart land told through the journey of a mother to be, who’s life and desire for motherhood has also been torn apart.
Another award-winning feature that he edited is Undocument, an episodic film that bears witness to four journeys of longing and love, immigration and identity as one cinematic vision. Undocument has won Best Film at Bucharest Film Awards.
Reza has always been interested in sculpting the surface of reality to reach the truth of human situations and stories. And this is what he would love to peruse and practice as a cinematic storyteller with his editing work.
He is currently based in London, available for film projects & freelance work.
