Artist's statement: Somewhere in between
As an editor I have been involved both in fiction and in documentary films. Very often I would feel that the magic of great cinema happens exactly somewhere in between these two approaches. When a scene imitates life so accurately that it feels real; or when reality is portrayed in a way that enhances it to a much deeper level… is there any difference? This strong commitment with reality paired with the creative freedom to play with it, contriving and molding it, is what drives me when I embark on making a film.

I believe great work always comes from personal experience. In my movies I constantly search for emotions or situations I know well, and I try to analyze them in order to find the universal in them. It is like a quest to help me understand the mechanisms behind a certain sentiment so I can later share it with anyone, anywhere.
