Pauls Kesteris

Profession: Director
Country: Latvia
Pauls Kesteris (33) 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 short film “Personality shop” (2011) was nominated for Best Debut at the National Film Award Latvia and advertising work nominated and awarded in various local and international festivals. His academic and professional journeys have taken him across the Baltics and the US, most recently receiving an MA in film directing with a poetic documentary “Crossing” about a remote river ferry.
