Another peaceful day alone in dorm with music, another Friday night gig at a cozy bar playing the same songs make it just another normal day for Aria, a young international student …until it turns to chaos after an unexpected video call from his home country, Iran.

POPLIFE is a coming of age story that portrays a situation where everything and nothing has happened at all. This throbbing short film packed with rock music and guitar solos, Strokesian outfits, online and intimate conversations, portrays a day in the life of a young student who reaches a level of maturity after his perception of family and relationships is suddenly challenged and destroyed.

Sam Mohseni is an Iranian writer and director based in Vancouver, Canada currently finishing his Bachelor degree in Film Production at the University of British Columbia. He is also academically trained in Classical and Traditional Persian music practically and theoretically.

Sam is interested in telling stories that explore characters of different backgrounds and cultures who are put in an unfamiliar space, and the journey they must go through to find their place in a new society.

After the completion of his Bachelor degree, Sam wants to pursue Graduate studies and eventually a creative career to reach his goal of becoming a successful multi-medium artist.
