Simin Vaswani about “Timeless Love”
“As a first-time filmmaker, I am thrilled at the recognition that Timeless Love has already received,” said Simin Vaswani who wrote, produced and stars in the short dance film. “Qualifying for the Oscars underscores that there is an audience for films that focus on the human spirit, and our search for connection. I started Sarina Film Productions with a vision to tell stories that speak to common themes of the human condition – love, resilience, and strength in adversity – and I am so moved at the reception to our first film, and the impact that we will be able to have by telling these stories.”
