Sam Motazedi is a megalomaniac of local repute. "Everything I do must be an all-out salute to myself," he's known to have once  boasted while leaving a rather rickety toilet on the outskirts of Naypyidaw, Burma and after a tumultuous week of filming a heart-felt documentary on Buddhism. 

When not busy reducing people to tears or cultural stereotypes, he can be spotted in hip cafes in search of prestige. He's been told that, if dressed appropriately, it will show up, eventually. 

He makes films, writes stories, takes pictures and, semi-regularly, pretends to be someone other than who he is.
