I am a director and screenwriter from Russia. I came to Sweden in 2011 and half a year later made my first short film “Music Dust” with a Swedish production company Röde Orm Film. After that I worked as a marketing coordinator for an award winning documentary “El Medico–The Cubaton Story” by Daniel Fridell, and later continued filming for his new documentary “Pappas flicka”.
In 2019 I produced a short animated film "Double Interview" with support from the Swedish Film Institute and Filmbasen Stockholm. "Double Interview" is based on a short story by Eritrean journalist Dessale Abraham who holds 2013 International Press Freedom Award.
Unique traits: I come from Chelyabinsk - the iron fist of Russia, which Russians call "the city of the toughest men", and the rest of the world "the city of the toughest radiation". We drink boiling steel, eat rusting nails, and believe wholeheartedly that it will be only us and coackroaches survivng a nuclear war. This doesn't make me the most romantic director, but surely quite a tough one.
