I've heard about it on the news (IHAN)

Two men of oriental appearance stay at the hotel and arouse suspicion among the workers. For security reasons, an anti-terrorist group was called up. The investigators have only a description of the appearance of the suspects. But what if everyone, including investigators, looks alike?

Director Biography - Alexandra Kozina

My creative work is based on the process of discovering life as an independent organism. Having the ability to penetrate the information field and read its signs, I have developed a particular style, which I have called "conversations with life". Streets filled with people, cities and countries, nature - each space has its own "psychogeography". They speak to us, if we are sensitive and attentive to it. This is what I translate through my art - developing a sensitivity to the field and a constant interest in knowing.

I frame my work as visual poetry diaries - it emphasises the intimacy of our conversations with life. Out of a great love for antiquity, I use the artistic tools and techniques of different epochs: letterpress printing, the aesthetics of film photography, the poetic associations of calligraphy and typography. And as a book aesthete I focus on handicraft, paperwork and writing.

Through discovering the multiple facets of this life, I want to unite worlds, to open cultures, to expand from the inside out. I believe that the cosmos exists not only beyond our planet, but also within us. Boundless and deep. Based on all this, I have created an individual mythology, correlated with my personal experience.
