Mohsen Abdolvahab (b. 1957, Tehran) started his film career as an editor and documentary filmmaker. He has edited more than 30 documentaries and features, and directed many documentaries including "The Heritage of the Sun" (2002) which won the Silver Wolf award at the Amsterdam Festival. He has collaborated with Rakhshan Bani-Etemad for over two decades and co-directed his first feature film "Gilaneh" with her. Please Do Not Disturb is his first full length feature film.
