Seeking Valentina, written and directed by Armin Nasseri, follows Benjamin (played by Ali Bavarian), an Iranian-American writer, in the pangs of grief. When Benjamin takes in a whimsical and an engaging tenant and she mysteriously disappears, it is for the audience to decide is she a ghost, a hallucination, a dream or a runaway. Enigmatic and controversial to some, Seeking Valentina has received tremendous critical acclaim worldwide. Nasseri vigorously resisted stereotyping throughout his production, and cast many actors against type. Regarding his film's recent success both in the U.S. and abroad, Nasseri says, "I am deeply humbled and honored that Seeking Valentina continues to touch such a diverse audience and grateful to be nominated for Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards.” Lead actress and producer Kristin West said, “We are so grateful to our fans who continue to cheer on this film and grateful to our indie horror and fantasy film community that have opened their hearts and minds to the message of Seeking Valentina.” Seeking Valentina continues its festival run at a number of esteemed festival with screenings scheduled Bare Bones International Film Festival and the Las Vegas Galaxy Film Awards in April.
