Biography

Victor Ginzburg (b. 1959, Moscow) emigrated to the USA with his parents when he was 15. He studied filmmaking at the School of Visual Arts in New York, and subsequently made several successful music videos featuring various artists (Belinda Carlisle, Jody Watley, Lou Reed). He debuted in film with the documentary THE RESTLESS GARDEN (1994) which, he states, reflects the spirit of his native Russia. The film was provocative for its eroticism and for its association of the trash music scene with the conceptual art coming out of Moscow’s avant-garde movement of the era. In later years he worked on domestic and foreign TV programmes, was involved in the film technology business, and wrote screenplays.
