directors statement

As an young artist I always look for content that speaks to me and reflects realities and problems of contemporary life. Past years probably the only popular genre coming out from Georgia was social dramas, since for unknown reasons directors and writers thought this was the only way to hear their voices. However, instead of different voices the films become to look the same and the snobbish attitude towards movies made lots of film genres to vanish. All of the above inspired me to write a novel loosely based on my personal experience. Novel become really popular among the young audience of Georgia and later novel was transformed into a script, which I am currently working on. I want to introduce the audience to characters from my point of view, I want to show the audience the familiar situations and places from the perspective they have never seen before.
