Kirill Sokolov

Director

Born in 1989 in St Petersburg, Kirill Sokolov graduated from Peter the Great St Petersburg Polytechnic University before attending workshops on filmmaking. ‘Why Don’t You Just Die!’ is Sokolov’s first full-length feature following four short films which established him as the inventor of a sub-genre of ‘Interior Western’. At 31, Sokolov is clearly a figure to watch, with ‘Why Don’t You Just Die!’ lapping both international critical and audience acclaim.
