TULPAN is Sergey Dvortsevoy?s first feature film. Sergey has directed several short and medium-length documentary films which have won numerous top prizes at festivals like Festival dei Popoli (Florence, Italy), Sunny Side of the Doc (Marseille, France), Cinema
du Reel (Paris, France), as well as the prestigious documentary festivals in Leipzig, Germany, and Nyon, France. However, Sergey prefers to describe his award-winning films IN THE DARK, HIGHWAY, BREAD DAY and PARADISE as ?life cinema.? His goal has always been to show the simplicity and warmth of the world in a mixture of naturalism and poetry.
Born in 1962 in Chimkent, Kazakhstan, Sergey graduated from Aviation college in the Ukraine and the Radiotechnical-Institut in Novosibirsk. As an Aeroflot radio engineer, he traveled all over the country, until he saw an announcement for higher education
in directing and screenwriting in Moscow.
