Niki is a Dutch/Iranian director and she writes in 3rd person because that’s what you’re supposed to do on websites. Her favourite colour is yellow. She loves weird and not
well-adjusted people. And she has no sense of direction whatsoever.
Niki is specialized in youth. She directs, comes up with new concepts, writes, designs and gives lectures/masterclasses about (how to reach) a young audience.
Her youth documentary ‘Ninnoc’ won 7 international awards at film festivals. I.a. at Berlinale and IDFA. She wrote the book ‘Dokter Corrie geeft antwoord’ (sexual education for children in a humoristic way) and is currently working on her new documentary for the national Dutch network VPRO.
She wants viewers to be surprised or confused after seeing her stories. And she hopes they will doubt their own version of reality. She also hopes that she will look less British in the future. So people will stop addressing her in English 6 times a day.
Niki lives in Amsterdam, studied photography at the New School University in New York, an orientation year at the Rietveld art Academy and got her masters at the University of Amsterdam, specializing in Youth & media and representation.
