Pauls Kesteris was born in the late 1980’s and raised in a bohemian family of young actors. He spent his early 20’s playing drums in a punk rock band and flunking out of philosophy and sociology studies until he found film as his dearest and most complete form of expression. His latest documentary film Crossing (2021) received the National Film Award in Latvia, and his advertising work has been nominated and awarded in various local and international festivals.
