Maximilian Homaei, was born in Tehran, and migrated to Sydney at the age of fourteen with his family. He was introduced to the world of film by David Lean and his seminal works - Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor Zhivago and Brief Encounter – He instantly developed a love for cinema which lead him to pursue a career in filmmaking.
He co-wrote and directed my first film - Kettle - which explores the troubled journey of a young man – Kris – who is torn between the religious convictions of his conservative mother and the onset of his sexual awakening. Since then, he has been making short films, documentaries and commercials, most notably at the esteemed Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation (SCAF) - a philanthropic contemporary art gallery in Sydney, Australia.
