Latvian director / editor who enjoys staying playful when dealing with serious subjects. Equipped with senses of a musician and a belief that dreams, myths and fairy-tales can be useful tools for telling any contemporary story, he has created numerous original TV formats, music videos, ads and also 3 short fiction films (“The Red Spot”, “KK2678” and “King Of The Wild Things”). His efforts in documentary genre have resulted in three films – “Stuck in Stikine” (2007), “Double Aliens” (2015) and “Liberation Day” (2016, co-directed with Morten Traavik).
