Writing has been a dormant passion for many years. It thrills me to unleash new worlds and shake up the mundane. My inspirations are Aaron Sorkin and Tony Kushner.


Our Review

How I wish Lieutenant Colonal Richard Tailor had arrived a couple of minutes earlier and Duvid had one more chance to live in the free World. Shokhmeidel is a pulse-pounding portrait and raw depiction of the horrors of war.


Nearly as many films have been shot about war and yet it rattles us completely each time we come across a new script. The result of Shokhmeidel is a powerful story presenting the inhumanities of war leashed by a handful of people in power over the fragile humanity of the ordinary people caught in it. Nothing more to be said about this excellent script. This will be a great short film !
