“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.

It is all very uncomplicated. Anna Feodorovna Belova lives in a small village. She is twice a widow and now lives together with her brother Michail Feodorovich. Sometimes two other brothers, Vasily and Sergei Feodorovich come to visit them. At those occasions, they drink a lot of tea, they take a Russian steam bath and discuss, among other things, the question whether there is "a standard to measure ordeals by."For the rest there is some cattle, a dog is running around, the potatoes need grubbing up... What can happen there?
