We believe in the power of images to convey profound ideas and meaningful stories. The name of the company stems from the core concepts in Rumi’s and J. Krishnamurti’s teaching. Particularly on the principle that through “seeing that which is Eternal” does human activity acquire harmony, that without “seeing that which is Eternal” chaos prevails.
Eternals Pictures was started by Sohrab Kavir, a filmmaker who wanted to create a documentary film to honor the memory of his 3 brothers who died of Duchene Muscular dystrophy. He originally set out to raise awareness on the medical condition and to prevent future generations from experiencing the same suffering, but after witnessing the influence his film had on the audience he came to realise people’s capacity for good and decided to start an entire campaign dedicated to helping DMD sufferers. This eventually brought him to the idea of ‘Eternal Pictures’ a film organisation made up of a collaboration of filmmakers and practitioners who focus on films and media content to promote harmony and humanitarian causes.

Eternal is backed by hundreds of supporters who actively provide us with resources to do what we’re best at. Many of our supporters have been gained through our humanitarian work in the past and continue to support us to this day in whatever project we decide to take on no matter what the challenges.
In addition to a number of commercials and short films, eternal pictures have created a feature documentary called Game On. We received an incredible amount of positive feedback from the film which went on to spawn the Duchene Campaign who’s aim is to raise awareness on this life-changing disease. After much effort and work Eternal Pictures can proudly say that they are now partnered with Duchene UK thanks to their campaign. Other charities that Eternal Pictures is in collaboration with include:
- Dystrophy NGO
- Magic of Persia
- Muscle Help
- ICC Charity
- The Cornelius Art Foundation
