Director Bio

Mehrdad Taheri was born in 1983 in Teheran, the son of an Iranian business man. In early 2016, Taheri founded the Round 12 film production company and shot his feature film debut Thin Blood.

Director Statement

The film is about dependency, loss of control and trying to make the right decisions to become independent. There’s an appeal in the thought that it’s not important if you lead a life adapted to social standards or walk your path as an outcast. As long as you stay true to yourself and make your own choices, you are a free man. „Man is born free and everywhere is in chains.” (Jean-Jacques Rosseau).
