Director Statement

In my experimental video portrait "Rona" I tried to shoot something more, than just visual portrait of a human. Usually people are interested in some person, who did/does something special, had a success in profession, business, etc. I decided to focus on human being, human nature. A lot of people want to be somebody but not they really are. So my story is about us.
