Franklin is a young directors’ collective founded in 2013 by Anni & Linda at the age of 19.

The creative duo with queer and Iranian backgrounds started off directing documentary and fiction on topics like diversity and queerness – stories about their own communities important to their generation. With these topics they have now entered the commercial stage aiming to tell stories of real people and crossing visual boundaries by mixing realism with aesthetics in their work. http://www.franklinfilm.net
