The spring is in the air!
It surely has been a while since my last update! Hello, friends.
Last year I decided to take a break from the busy film schedule and to enjoy life at its fullest - for the first time in my 10 year career. My journey took me to the Black Rock desert, home of the Burning Man festival, and to the lifeless haunting landscapes of Death Valley with the temperatures of 46C (115F) in shade. In between I visited Yosemite National park and did a blitz-tour of San Francisco. Somewhere out there I found my tiny personal Paradise.
Amidst Czech Republic and Russia I presented my feature doc to a sold-out audience at Guelph Documentary Film Festival. And in my native Moscow I gave a master-class on filmmaking to a full house of new generation of film hopefuls.
This year I continue my exploration of Japanese Butoh dance (Ceiling Dance is my little experimental video inspired by it) and embark on a new film's journey. Below are the highlights since my last summer's update.
