Tannaz Hazemi

Tannaz is originally from Iran, raised in Sweden, left for Italy, hosted an Tele+ spot in Milan, modeled in Paris, spent a decade in New York and is now making films in Los Angeles.

Tannaz is larger than life. Outspoken. Somewhat abrupt. Directing at all times. While I felt she's someone who'd swoop in if I said something she didn't agree with. There is also a softness to her. A vulnerability. She's complex. And I found it refreshing. I loved getting to know her.

Her latest short film is called Hail Mary Country and has won many awards. I strongly recommend: Hail Mary Country
