DIRECTING PORTFOLIO

"The heart of a poet and the skin of an elephant. That is what a director has to be." - Mira Nair, film director

Uki's directorial work is heavily influenced by his cultural background, his queerness, and the simplest joy of making pictures. From working with actors to achieve freedom and childlike sincerity on-camera to nailing that perfect shot composition with the crew behind the camera, Uki is always completely immersed in every aspect of filmmaking. Willingly and wholeheartedly.
