Projects in development
Gorila, in development, premiere in 2020. The story reflects the themes of power and the close link between politics, secret services and business. The main character is a 40-year-old oligarch who, through his own skill, intellect, contacts and cynical backstage manoeuvring has built a powerful business empire. His life will change dramatically after a record of his involvement in the bribery of high-ranking political officials and civil servants becomes public. The story is inspired by real events.
