I’m an internationally experienced film director based in Vienna and Berlin, schooled at the Austrian State School of Film and Television – Filmakademie Wien. My films traveled to numerous international festivals and won quite a few awards including the FIRST STEPS AWARD – the most important newcomer honors in the German speaking countries. My visual language focuses both on telling the stories of a longing for something that has been lost and discovering otherness that lingers within each of us. My aesthetic approach is alternating between rawness and sensuality that is wrapped in haptics of human bodies. Years of experience in contemporary dance and physical theater complete my methods of working with professional and non-professional actors.
Being hired as a director for commissioned works in Poland, Portugal, Austria, Germany and East Africa was an enriching part of my path.
Currently I’m developing my first feature film, that so far has been supported by the Austrian Film Institute ÖFI, the Austrian Federal Chancellery and the Austrian Screenwriter’s Association.
