Chief of Social Instigation
If you need to get something done in the documentary world, Marjan can tell you who you should talk to, how you should go about it and what you’re likely to accomplish. She’s probably one of the funniest people you’ll meet, and the mere mention of her name elicits coos of adoration. People who want her on their team have to stand in line. Lucky for us (and you), we were at the front.
Don’t waste any time trying to pronounce her funny Iranian name. Her teachers in London used to (incorrectly) call her “margin” but she prefers “Marj,” like The Simpsons. And she has the hair to match.
