MA work

My work has mostly focused on the stories that highlight characters’ personal traits. I find the process of observing and analysing the characters, as if I am a psychologist, interesting.


My graduation film Henrick is an adapted story about a boy who has an obsession about collecting his white sneakers.


Making film is like deconstructing a mind and reassembling it in a different way. I’m interested in exploring different kinds of methods, not only physical material but also digital image making.
