Directed by Malina Maria Manckiewicz


Malina was born in Australia in 1992, but spent most of her childhood in the small town of Skierniewice, in the heart of Poland. She came back to Sydney as a teenager where she studied first drama and then directing, graduating from the Australian Film Television and Radio School in 2014. In her final year at the school Malina wrote and directed two short films Deszcz and Driftwood Dustmites under the mentorship of award winning Australian directors: Cate Shortland and Samantha Lang. Malina's work is meditative and observational and gravitates, in subject, to the enigmatic side of familial relationships.

Driftwood Dustmites premiered at Berlinale 2015 and also screened at Seattle International Film Festival, New York International Film Festival, WorldFest- Houston International Film Festival, it recently won Best Achievement in Cinematography at this year's St.Kilda Film Festival.
