Director Biography - Michalis Langas

My name is Michalis Langas and I originate from Lamia, Greece. I am a film writer/director based in London, UK. I am also a Dentist with a special interest in Dental Implantology. Cinema helps me sleep. Dentistry pays the rent for a place to sleep in.

The passion with storytelling existed from a young age. I always believed that structure is the foundation in life and aesthetics is nothing more but an element to highlight that.

This belief changed when I first felt that aesthetics can also create structure.
