FILMOGRAFIA

Declaration

film director

“In my films, I try to explore the hearts and minds of people at moments of extreme pressure, at moments of decision making, moments of crisis. Personal moments that we all know, we all recognize, wherever we are. […] Elements of a classic thriller meet and blend naturally with my central, eternal motifs of self-discovery and identity, identity loss as well as reflecting universal values through local stories.”
