Lowam Eyasu immigrated from Eritrea as a refugee with her parents and siblings when she was 2 years old. They somehow landed in Barstow Ca, a small desert town that is equivalent to The Hills Have Eyes meets Breaking Bad. At 17 she got the hell out of Barstow and attended California State University Long Beach. She received a BA in performance and has studied under Jeff Perry and Alexandra Billings at Steppenwolf Theatre West. After living in Los Angeles and New York as an actor, she quickly learned that the industry wasn’t quite representing her or women like her. As a result of the misrepresentation she started writing for herself and eventually creating her own work with a childhood friend. They focus on narrative content for women, women of color and other underrepresented communities. Lowam is passionate about advancing narratives that stand to uphold the uniquely individual stories that are seldom told. She has made it to the 2nd round of Sundance Episodic Lab with her pilot Habish and is currently working on her first fully funded feature.
