Biography

Sokolov was born in 1989 in Saint Petersburg, Russia. In 2012, he received a Master's degree in Physics and Technology of Nanostructures. Even as he worked to complete his degree in Physics, he began making short films with his friends, initially using just ketchup as blood. Inspired by films such as THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY, EVIL DAD 2, OLD BOY and KILL BILL Volumes 1 and 2, Sokolov discovered that he had both love and a talent for dark comedy, a genre which has yet to gain popularity in Russia. In 2013 he enrolled in a program for Advanced Courses for Film Directors and Scriptwriters (VKSR) at the workshop of V. Khotinenko, P. Finn, and V. Fenchenko. In 2015 he successfully defended his diploma with the short film THE FLAME. In addition to his debut film, WHY DON'T YOU JUST DIE? Sokolov has edited several Russian full-length feature films, written several full-length screenplays, and directed music videos and commercials.
