Director Statement

I am interested in all directions of cinema production. My goal is to reach realism in movies and to raise social issues. Actors who act in my works became my friends and I fully trust them. I have been inspired by David Fincher's, Darren Aronofsky's and Danny Villeneuve's works and try to bring their traditions into cinema.
