Meet Hari

Hari Sama is a Mexican director, screenwriter, actor, producer and musician. He studied Film Directing at the Centro de Capacitación Cinematográfica (CCC) and composition at the Center for Research and Music Studies in Mexico City. From a young age he has been torn between the two passions: film and music and has used that to become one of the most convincing voices of the new independent cinema movement in Mexico.

His films traverse pain and space, dark impulses and light. Hari has chosen to work on films that are nearly always autobiographical allowing him to pull from his own experiences, putting himself in uncomfortable places where true humanist reflection is possible. His films have participated in numerous festivals around the world and have won several awards including San Sebastian International Film Festival, Shanghai International Film Festival, Biarritz Latin American Film Festival, Mar del Plata, The Montreal World Film Festival, Guadalajara International Film Festival and Morelia International Film Festival.

His newest film, This Is Not Berlin, premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival with great reviews by Screen Daily, Out Magazine among many others. The film also screened at Tribeca´s Critic´s Week, Seattle International Film Festival, Miami International Film Festival and won four awards at the Málaga Film Festival (Jury Special Award, Best Supporting Actor, Best Cinematography and Critic´s Award). He is currently in the process of developing his sixth feature film, Ballast.
