Filmography

Moscow! Moscow! Disaster - 2018
A 15-minute burlesque fiction short film about a prestigious Russian nuclear submarine. The crew of the submarine is lost in the Atlantic Ocean, near the east coast of Florida. The absurdity is pushed to its climax in this exchange between two heads of state from powerful countries, totally disconnected and whose buffoonery is limitless.

The Magic Door - 2017

In the kitchen, there is a cupboard door which, between midnight and one midnight, opens onto the beyond. One night, the owner disappears behind the door, leaving his wife and the man beast.

Unique traits: I do what I say and I do what I think I finish what I start and I am grateful to the people I work with, because nothing would be possible without them.
