After spending most of her life away from home, traveling across continents and exploring different cultures, Anastasia devotes her passion to filmmaking and immerses herself completely in every stage of production, wrestling with the broad philosophical concepts that underlie her films. “Prayer Before Birth”, Anastasia’s latest creation, is an experimental feature film photographed in over 10 countries. It explores themes of interconnection and transcendence. It is a visual quest of rediscovery that plunges into nature, history, human spirit and finally into the realm of awe. Anastasia has recently graduated School of Visual Arts, with BFA in Directing / Producing. Born and raised in Russia, based in New York.
