His documentary films have been awarded various distinctions in Europe and the United States. In 2006, he made My Brother Is Getting Married, his first fiction film. Cleveland versus Wall Street, a film that recreates a fictional trial between evicted Clevelanders and bankers blamed for the financial crisis of 2007–2010, which was selected for the Director's Fortnight sidebar of the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, is his fifth feature-length film.
