Director Biography - Maria Yaremchuk

I was born on August 30th, 1983, in Kiev (Ukraine), the citizen of Ukraine.

I graduated secondary school in 2000 and entered the economical department of National Agricultural University of Ukraine (NAUU), Kiev, the specialty “Finances”.

In 2005 I received the Master of Finances degree.

Since that time I have been doing individual training and consulting business, working in different spheres.

In 2015, when the political situation in Ukraine has changed, I started working as a journalist for several online and offline editions. I was writing and making videos mostly on social, military and historical issues.

In 2017 I have become a screenwriter and a co-director for my first documentary film – “Orest”, and now I continue working on the next biographical story of the Ukrainian rebels. For my first screenplay I have received an award of the V Festival of Historical Films "Beyond Time".

In 2018 I have made me first feature short film "Transition", which has already been selected for two Ukrainian festivals.
I also have finished my second documentary film “Insurgent Tango”.
