Ana Lily Amirpour
Amipour is an English-born Iranian-American director, writer, producer and actor. She's best known for making A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT, which debuted at Sundance in 2014. “Making a film is like putting on a perfume — you see who it attracts,” says Amirpour, whose “Iranian vampire spaghetti western” A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT has been amassing passionate devotees since its premiere at Sundance this year. “I make films to make friends,” Amirpour continues. “It’s just me, lonely, trying to figure out how to be a human being. When making a film, something in your brain caves: you invite people in and those people are part of it for a while. And then you’re done, it’s over, and you have to do it all over again.” A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT is an astonishing debut feature that contains the dark beauty of old-school vampire films, the cool rigor of the Iranian New Wave, and the culturally aware wit of someone with killer taste in music and movies.
