Aim & Objectives

 

I started writing and directing documentary films and television reports several years ago. My main objective: to bring awareness and understanding, and to surprise the audience.


My films are usually shot abroad. They deal with social issues - topics that could be either serious or light-hearted - and shine a light on little-known aspects of a country, a community or an individual.
