Who is Yevgeny Yufit?

Yevgeny Yufit, born 1961 in Leningrad is a Russian filmmaker, photographer, and painter. He was a founding member of Russia's Parallel Cinema movement.

Yufit first became famous for his macabre short films, which, like the films of Guy Maddin, often looked as though they had been made during the 1920s or 1930s. In the 1990s, Yufit began making features similar in style to his shorts, with plots often centered around genetic experimentation and pseudoscience. He is often described as a necrorealist.
