Marek Stave, a filmmaker with 15 years of experience in London and Los Angeles. Specializing in autobiographical, experimental narratives, my films delve into the realm of “dangerous writing,” where art is both a passion and a challenge.
Marek practiced experimental film at UCLA under Navid Sinaki and partook in master critique classes with James Benning at CalArts in 2019. In 2020, Marek was part of Ecole de Leth, a one-off short film program led by poet Jørgen Leth (86) at the Arken Museum of Modern Art, where he learned filmmaking from Thomas Vinterberg and Lars von Trier.
Marek’s recent film is “Closer To Yourself” (2023) premiered in Paris during ASVOFF15 in collaboration with Dover Street Market. He’s in the production phase of his “Artist in Therapy” and is also developing the script for his debut feature film, “Du kan ta det på di kappe!” or “You Can Take It Upon Your Cape.”
