I treat cinematic art as a journey through transfigured time where all solids melt into air: truths turn out to be lies, and dreams intrude into reality. My subject matter often deals with absurd dilemmas that we encounter in our everyday life. At the end of each journey, I aim at inspiring the spectators to find the laughables in miseries, and to discover the deeper tragedies under seemingly decent appearances.
