Liliya developed a strong interest in journalism in early childhood, having the first experience of “publishing” in a magazine at the age of 5. Her ardor gradually turned into her profession. She honed her skills in the Faculty of Journalism department at Moscow State University, then worked as a news anchor for a local Moscow TV station and later as a presenter for international documentary channel Russian Travel Guide. It was her last job that helped her discover the incredibly fathomless world of documentaries. Now she is a student of MFA Soc Doc and hopes to further develop her storytelling and filmmaking skills.
'All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players.'- William Shakespeare. How many masks can one wear? How many lives can all of us live through? Where and when are we real or not? Why are we trying to hide ourselves behind these facades? This autobiographical film tells the story of a filmmaker who used to be a news anchor and reporter back in Russia. We can see her life on and off the screen but do we actually know the real person? 'From Reel to Real' is a short film that tells the story of a young woman struggling to break through these facades that many see her surrounded by.
