About the Filmmaker

Hilda Hashempour is a mother, actress, and award winning filmmaker, who grew up in Iran. She began her professional journey with acting in feature films and working with prominent Iranian filmmakers. However, after years of discrimination due to her belief in the Baha’i faith, she decided to immigrate to Canada. There, she continued her education at Toronto Film School and began to explore her passion for storytelling as a director and writer. The shift from acting to film making taught her how to use images and sound, instead of her voice and body to express her artistic vision.
