MAHMUT AKAY

About

Mahmut is a film director from London.

His appetite for storytelling grew during childhood, from creating comic books with glitter paint to renting VHS movies everyday to making films with friends, using toy spaceships and vacuum cleaners as props.

During his teens, it became apparent that his love for films wasn’t simply for entertainment purposes but a deep-seeded emotional need to grasp the human condition and patterns of living. He’s been making films ever since.
