Since 2017 I am studying Film at the Zurich University of the Arts. My filmwork contains mainly of experimental and surreal work and documentary. The process of filming someone to me feels very related  to the way I paint someone. But I can not finish the film in one clear gesture as I do my paintings sometimes.
