Born  and raised in Russia, I hold a BA and MA from Smolny College of Liberal  Arts and Sciences in St. Petersburg with a major in Contemporary Art  and Film Criticism. As a video artist and curator, I constantly  navigated the borders between the digital and the analogue, cultural  identity and colonial history, personal narratives and collective  memory. For several years, I’ve been working as a Film festival curator  and manager in Saint Petersburg

Currently,  I am a PhD student in Film Studies at Concordia. My research is focused  on undergoing processes and changes occurred in the post-socialist  societies and cultures before and after 1989. My project is dealing with  the post-conflict situation and decontamination of the cultural  environment in Balkan region during the collapse of the USSR.

He started the Cinema in the Midst of Struggle screening series.
