Full Bio
Maryam Habibian is a filmmaker with a Ph.D in Educational Theater from NYU. Her latest work is a feature documentary, The Mist, which follows the filmmaker on a journey of discovery in the land of her birth. It was screened at a Middle Eastern conference in San Diego as a work in progress in July 2008, as a finished work at Rutgers University in February 2009, at Brecht Forum in New York City in March 2009, at Irianian Armenian Society of New York in April 2009, and at New Filmmakers Festival in New York City in July 2009.

Dr. Habibian first got the idea for this film in summer, 2002, while in Tehran doing NEH-funded research on iconic Iranian poet Forugh Farrokhzad and her relationship to the city of Tehran. The resulting documentary short, Forugh Farrokhzad:Young Revoluntionary Poetess of Tehran, has been screened at the Library of Congress, at a gathering of women filmmakers in Tribeca, at the University of Sussex in England, at the CCHA conference in Santa Fe, and at the Bowery Poetry Club in New York Ci
