Having lived in the US, India, Germany, Belgium, United Arab Emirates and Hungary, it is my personal and professional mission to create platforms for intercultural exploration and understanding.
My filmmaking practice explores notions of migration, dependence and memory in both fictional and documentary forms. As a writer and director, I examine human bonds by relating them to biological, psychological, and political phenomena.
In addition to film, my research has included theoretical and practical implications of virtual reality, museum education in the 21st century, and cultural memory and resistance.
