Biography

Alexander Hant (b. 1985, Khanty-Mansiysk, USSR), born Alexander Yevseyev, studied film direction under Karen Shakhnazarov and recently graduated from the Gerasimov Institute of Cinematography (VGIK); his choice of professional name was inspired by his hometown. His uncommon talent began to emerge during his coursework, and his etudes from that time, AT THE OPERA (2011) and DINNER (2012), won awards at a student film festival. He was subsequently entrusted with the task of turning the award-winning screenplay by fellow student Alexey Borodachev into a feature film. The recognition Hant has earned for his work is reflected in his ability to secure the outstanding Russian actor Alexey Serebryakov for one of the main roles; resident in Canada, the actor even relinquished his fee in view of the debut feature’s budget restrictions.
