Director Biography - Ruben Levi

I started out making fan films with my friends, or simply shooting stuff around myself. I moved to New York City in 2010 and directed short documentaries and musc videos. I joined a writer’s group for screenwriters in 2014, and brought an unauthorized subsidiary of the group along as I moved back home to Stockholm in 2016. Since then, two short films have spawned out through the writer’s group; the first “Kulturpolitik, ett kammarspel” and the second, the dystopian short “Processen”.
