'Shapeshifter' or 'A Tale of Stockholm': A short film by Shima Niavarani

By Tom Pattinson

Multi-hyphenate performer Shima Niavarani writes, produces and stars in a fantastical film, in which she addresses the challenges of isolation and the limitless potential of the imagination

Shima Niavarani works very hard.


This is evidenced from the long list of credits that span the stage, TV, film and radio over her 17-year career. It’s also evidenced in the fact that, while the rest of Scandinavia was lounging at their summer houses, Niavarani was working on a short film commissioned by Vogue Scandinavia for our October-November issue.
