”…tales of love and death. These classical themes are treated with the graveness of an adult and yet with the curiosity of a child. His somewhat disturbing films bear witness of a quest for Truth – dark as it may be.
In his probing of the human soul and its profound reasons, the scenery or the setting reflects the characters’ state of mind, while the refined framing, depth of field, juxtaposition of images and camera movements suggest a parallel reality, close to the realm of dreams…” M. Berthelius – film critic

Director Statement

“Play” is an attempt to rebound the mechanism in the thought of the unconscious. The infinite changes that process a trauma or tragedy until what happened becomes acceptable. For this reason, I wanted to exaggerate suffering, to the point of absurdity. Afterall, isn’t this how we experience our fears in dreams? And to what extent, are our dreams borrowed from pop culture messages? In my film, paradise is nothing more than finding yourself in an advertisement for Pepsi… leaving it up to the viewer to decide if the proposed finale is a happy ending or, perhaps… a horror story.
