Massoud Bakhshi was born in 1972 in Tehran. He holds a special place in Iranian cinema, which is abounding with creativity. His talent becomes obvious in his documentaries, going from serious drama (IDENTIFICATION OF A WOMAN) to the most biting and caustic humour (TEHRAN HAS NO MORE POMEGRANATES!) and in his first fiction short film (BAG DAD BARBER). A RESPECTABLE FAMILY is his first feature film.
