Babis Makrides studied at the Stavrakos Cinema and Television School and belongs in a new generation of directors, named abroad as ‘’the directors of the paradox’’. In 2005, his short film ‘’The last Fakir’’, was awarded at the Festival of Drama, revealing the first signs of his different approach as director. Although he is very young, he has already a significant presence as director in several TV commercials, short films and the cinema movie ‘’L. I am’’, which was aired in 2012 and won the Grand Prix at the Molodist Festival in Kiev. The film ‘’L. I am’’ made also a remarkable impression at the Sundance Festival and the Festival of Utah, proving to the world the value of our Greek Babis Makrides with the unexpected and exceptional director’s view.
