 Ilana Rein was born and raised in New York City and is currently a Los Angeles-based director and screenwriter. Her films have been screened at film festivals, galleries, and universities internationally. It’s been written that Rein is “spearheading a new genre”* that blurs the line between science fiction and reality and that her work demonstrates a “…profound hunger to connect through art…stories that feel directly relevant to the challenges of the modern day.”**

Her work has been featured in numerous publications, including Wired, Doubletake, Scientific American, 9/9 Paris, and Art in America. Articles and interviews with Think Progress, Wired, Earth2Hub and Arcfinity are available online.

Rein works and lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two sons and two dogs.

Perception is Rein’s debut feature film.
