“Moving images are my way of communication. As a filmmaker I have a unique chance to immerse the viewer in a temporal alternative universe about which he or she knows nothing of. I can try to give another point of view and to connect and sensibilize people around the globe. I love exploring, diving into different worlds and finding real stories that should be told in a sensitive but also creative way. I feel that from each new project I can grow as a person and expand my family.”
