Director Biography - Julia Voytyuk

I was born beyond the Arctic Circle of Russia in the city called Labytnangi, while my parents were on expedition. But Moscow is the place where I grew up.
I loved cinema and theatre since childhood, and suddenly became aware that I could not imagine my life without it in the future.
After my school graduation i entered the Theatre academy and successfully completed studying chatting and directing faculty, majoring in drama theater and film actress .
Movie making was the only thing that made my heart race. I wanted to create, not just act.
Than I graduated Moscow Film School «short film direction».
Filming is my passion and love.
Because I was an actress myself, I adore working with my team. That’s why my filming sets are always fun and productive.
In my opinion the true purpose of the camera is to live, not just record. Otherwise I won’t be able to create things that I like - new beautiful worlds and amazing universes.

The catharsis isn’t always the same as tears and compassion.
Watching our film, you laugh and live with the characters, and not pity them.
