Sydney, Australia-based director Dimitri Basil was born in 1988 in the Amazons on the Colombian side. He quit school at the tender age of 13 to study Music, but ended up studying Film instead. “I would had loved to quit Film School too but couldn’t because I was on student visa. From my experience, it was only good to meet very good friends,” says Basil, who works as an independent filmmaker making shorts and music videos. And he occasionally does some acting.
