I always wanted to be a troubadour. Unfortunately, I was born several centuries too late, so I had to make do with being a filmmaker instead.
 

I have directed films for more than 15 years and my work has won more than 150 awards and has been selected for over 1,000 international film festivals (including several Oscar qualifying).
