Director Biography - Meruvet Bakenbaeva

Long story short. Meruvet graduated from the Faculty of psychology at the Saint Petersburg State University. In three years, she enrolled to the studio of directing at the Russian State University of Cinematography. Her creative biography has been started at the studio of non-fiction films in Saint Petersburg.
Meruvet has been making all sorts of movies for about thirty years, but inherently to the emphasis on spectator interest, and for most - to the internal «gene of knowledge».
Nowadays, she is an independent artist! Talking about designs? Meruvet argues there is a whole swarm of bees and she is not giving up a hope to accomplish all of them!

Если вкратце. Окончила факультет психологии Петербургского государственного университета. Через три года поступила в мастерскую режиссуры Всероссийского института кинематографии. Моя творческая биография началась на студии неигрового кино в Санкт-Петербурге.
Почти три десятка лет я снимала самые разные фильмы, но непременно с акцентом на зрительский интерес, на его «ген познания».
Сегодня я – свободный художник! Замыслов – целый пчелиный рой. Не теряю надежды их когда-нибудь осуществить!
