  • I am proud to be the winner of the 2019 YAFMA Award with my short film "ALES" and would like to thank the whole team of the Afrika Filmfestival for the great time I had in Leuven. The official selection of the Festival was very good and I had a chance to meet beautiful souls in there. See you next time with future projects !
