Director. Born into a theatrical Tehran family in 1983. His father was a well-known children’s TV director and producer, so Badkoobeh spent much of his childhood on set. He graduated in graphics from the Tehran School of Art in 2000 and then graduated in theatrical studies from the Azad University of Dramatic Art in 2005. Since 2003 he’s been working in TV advertising, making both commercial and cultural spots. Parallel to this, Pooya has also made short films “Mars” (2015) and “Upstairs neighbor” (2016), both of which have won national and international awards. “Dressage” is his first feature film.
