Private Project


The piece gradually deconstructs the meaning of a single sentence: “Tell me the truth.” The idea of a universal truth is almost completely discarded, and yet the search for it is no less persistent. The experiment seeks to find out, if deconstruction can erase or reinforce the meaning, or if it gives space to some completely different ideas.

Director Statement

Employing silly humor, repetition, and deconstruction, I question the accepted norms, and structures of our society. My shorts do not follow a traditional narrative. Rather, using minimal camera movements, I work with the connection of camera frame and reality inside and outside of it, as well as montage as one of the key creative tools to warp the reality and present it under an unexpected angle.
