  • Our second experience with festivals at FilmFreeway. Really happy and thankful that our short film "Neither you nor I" made Official Selection with these guys!

    UPDATE 25/02/22: BELOVED UKRAINE. The hearts and prayers of Liberty-loving people are with all of you during this dark hour. With the utmost respect to you, allow me to share a few words from the great Mario Benedetti:
    "...although the cold burns, even if fear bites, even if the sun hides and the wind shuts down, there's still fire in your soul, there's still life in your dreams. Because life is yours and yours is also the desire, because you wanted it and because I love you".
