“My passion for cinema comes from my early years. Aside from my love for cartoons, I had already watched all of Charlot’s movies and enjoyed westerns by Howard Hawks and John Ford at the age of three. Over time, I developed an interest in all genres, with a predilection for adventure, thriller and science fiction, as a result of my fascination for films such as Star Wars, Jaws, Aliens and Raiders of the Lost Ark.”
