Anahid Yahjian is an independent writer, director and producer of experimental, documentary and narrative cinema.
Her commitment to telling true stories (even if they come from her imagination) was shaped by an early love for visual storytelling that was formalized in college and took flight during her coming of age in Armenia. There, she produced the internationally awarded narrative short 140 Drams (Camerimage, Clermont-Ferrand 2013), laid the creative groundwork for the feature documentary Spiral (IDFA Bertha Fund 2015, Golden Apricot 2017) and shot and directed the viral digital documentary LEVON: A Wondrous Life (2013). Since returning to her native Los Angeles, she shot and directed the experimental cine-triptych, Corpus Callosum (2014-2016) and directed her first narrative science-fiction short Transmission (BFI Flare, Vancouver QFF 2019). When not creating her own work, she directs and supervises post production on music videos, commercial content and televised series for clients such as Amazon Music, Joyful Noise, Spotify, Vice, Netflix and A24.
She splits her time between Yerevan, Sofia (her birthplace), Los Angeles (her home), and New York City.E-mail her at yahjian[dot]anahid[at]gmail[dot]com -- or just click on this button:
