René: This Film Is Not Fiction
is an aesthetic love story, a ménage à trois, between textual, visual & performing arts as embodied in poetry (René Maria Rilke: Paul Boche), sculpture (Auguste René Rodin: actor, TBA) and dance (René Barnes: Corina Kinnear).
Homa T. Nasab is an American curator, producer & museologist who divides her time between Los Angeles, New York City & S.Florida. She holds graduate degrees from Harvard and Oxford Universities and the Courtauld Institute of Art.
During the early 1990’s, Nasab studied at the prestigious Stella Adler Conservatory, and worked as a production assistant on a number of independent film and theatre projects, in New York City. Later in the decade, she pursued film and video studies with John Gianvito, the former Curator of The Harvard Film Archives and a recipient of Chevalier in the Order of Arts and Letters by the French Ministry of Culture (2001).
The basis of Nasab’s curatorial work, academic studies and personal interests in visual arts are extensively rooted in early modern theatre (Stella Adler’s Conservatory); film & sculpture (UMass Boston); museology (Harvard University); 19th-20th century fine arts and their institutional histories (The Courtauld Institute); and, histories of museums & collecting (Oxford University).
Since 2003, Homa Nasab has served as an Arts and Cultural Adviser to a number of public (institutional) and private collectors in the United States, Great Britain and the Middle East.
** René: This Film Is Not Fiction is the first feature in a trilogy of dramas by Homa Nasab about the world of art and aesthetics. The second film tells the story of a thirty-something year-old art dealer; and the last feature is about a third generation art collector.
