Seeking Valentina follows Benjamin (played by Ali Bavarian), a writer, in the pangs of grief. When Benjamin takes in a whimsical and an engaging tenant named Valentina (Kristin West) and she mysteriously disappears, it is for the audience to decide if she is a ghost, a hallucination, a dream or a runaway. Enigmatic and Lynchian, Seeking Valentina has received tremendous critical acclaim worldwide. Regarding his film's recent successes both in the U.S. and abroad, Nasseri says, "I am very honored for the recognition the film has received and excited to screen this film at the 22nd Annual San Antonio Film Festival."
Kristin West, an award-winning actress who's been described as a "Texas talent with cosmopolitan appeal" is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin's prestigious Radio-TV-Film program. "Being from South Texas, it is an honor to screen at the San Antonio Film Festival," she said, "and I am excited to bring 'Seeking Valentina' home to San Antonio!"
Judith Hooge, who provided piano performances for the short film, has had a career as a music educator and South Texas fine arts advocate for over 30 years. Regarding the film's success, she said "I did not realize the magnitude of this project. I am thrilled about the success of the movie and never expected my part to be so well received."
