Director Biography - Anastasia Kirillovna Bobrovnitskaya

My first short film "what happened to your heart?" was filmed a year ago, and during this time I managed to get various knowledge in the field of cinematography from books. A year later, the premiere of the second, more professional, more sophisticated and deep film "The Devil's Trill" took place. Unfortunately, now I don’t have the opportunity to get an education as a director, so I shoot all my work completely on my own, using only a cameraman. My main inspiration is music, old films, paintings by Edvard Munch.
