Personal Quote:

If I hadn't turned out to be a filmmaker, I would have been a musician. I love music, I make films with music, I eat with music, I sleep with music, I think with music. Music makes me dream, it strengthens my creativity. I can travel with music. I close my eyes and I can travel all over the world with music. And one after another, stories come to me and I just record them.
