Otessa Ghadar surprised everyone by switching over to film from theoretical physics and math at the age of nineteen. She hasn't looked back since. Films that have influenced her as a writer and director include: “Rat Catcher,” “The Virgin Suicides,” “My Summer of Love,” and “Repo Man.” She loves TV shows like “The Wonder Years” and “Rome.” Otessa has fond memories of grunge-era DC and the B-movies of those days: young, fierce, low budget, and often starring Drew Barrymore. The teen world has always fascinated Otessa - then and now. Otessa is currently living and working in DC, where she recently started a small independent production company, and is focusing on new media and webseries.
