About the director

Olmo Omerzu was born in 1984 in Ljubljana, Slovenia. During his studies at FAMU in Prague, he directed several short films and a 40 minutes feature called The Second Act, about a couple who goes on a long overdue honeymoon only to discover that it is too late for their love. It was presented and awarded at several european festivals, distributed in Czech, Slovak and Slovenian cinemas.
