Kirill is a half Russian – half Ukrainian director and writer.

He started to make short films in 2009. The hobby turned into a passion and as a result, he directed two feature films Why Don’t You Just Die (2019) and No Looking Back (2021). After festival and critical success, Kirill garnered his reputation as Russia’s young Tarantino.

When the war broke out in February 2022, Kirill made public statements criticizing the government (see this NY Times article) after which he had to flee his homeland. Since then Kirill has been based in LA where he was welcomed by agents and industry friends.

Kirill has been signed up to direct the thriller “ULTRA” on TriStar which is now in development.
