Natalya Kudryashova

Russia

My story is about the “metaphysical space” we live in, which is far deeper than the world we see around us. It’s about how people have always, and still do, search for themselves in this space.

Born in Gorki – now Nizhny Novgorod – in the Soviet Union in 1978, Natalya studied acting at the Nizhegorodsky Theatre School before taking a Directing Course with Anatoly Vasiliev at the School of Dramatic Art in Moscow. Since 2001 she has appeared as an actress in numerous theatre productions in Moscow. Her feature PIONEER HEROES (2015) was selected at Berlinale and Goteborg. Her latest film is GERDA (2021), selected at Locarno FF.
