Director Story

Martin received a degree from FAMU in Directing Fiction but soon after he started focusing on documentaries. In his opinion, his experience with directing fiction gives him a big advantage – he puts emphasis on strong, emotion-filled stories as well as powerful audiovisual presentation. His debut film Vote for Kibera won the Audience Award at the Ji.hlava IDFF in 2018. Martin is now studying for his PhD degree at the Institute of Interna-tional Relations where he dedicates his work to the postcolonial identity of slums and cities in countries belonging to the Global South. The issue of clashing cultures and their mutual influences is one of principal topics which Martin addresses in his work.
