I’m Sasha Shegai, I’m 36. I graduated from the School of Film and Television in Paris in 2014, specializing in Film Directing. For the past 8 years I’ve been working as Art Director in numerous feature and documentary projects, both local and international. Our films have been nominated and won international prizes: “Horse Thieves” (2019) opened Busan Film Festival in 2019, short “History of Civilization” (2019) won at Locarno and participated in Toronto Film Festival, “Infinity” TV series screened on Canal+. Before the film school, I worked as a journalist making important social issues visible to the public. Back then I realized that the problems of third age, their unsettledness, their irrelevance to the contemporary society evokes my inner pain. And having acquired life and professional experience, now I’m finally ready to share this theme and my vision with public.
