Ataka51 is a directing collective based in Paris, formed by Alex, Phillipp, Sergei and Dima.
Alex, Philipp and Sergei met at the Moscow Institute of Cinema (VGIK), a prestigious institution with alumni including Eisenstein, Tarkovsky, Sokurov and many other greats. They quickly started to collaborate, share ideas and began shooting independent projects.
During scouting for their debut project, they were joined by Dima, graduate of the notorious MSNC film school. Ataka51 was born.
Since 2016, Ataka has been directing music videos and short films, as well as promo videos for brands and cultural events.
The collective has a unique style, rooted in strong visuals, at the crossroad of narrative and abstract genres, often political. They aim to integrate conceptual theory, art cinema and pop culture all together.
The collective goes beyond directorial craft, it is multidisciplinary. Ataka writes, directs, stages live performances and works with CGI.
Their projects mix techniques, using film, programming or AI-generated imagery. Their recent work includes several music videos for Husky and promos for the Beat Film Festival.
Don’t ask what 'Ataka51' means though, just know it involves parts of speculative theory, Neo-punks, and possibly an ominous crypto-conspiracy.
