They say that life imitates art—and, as evident in filmmaker Vugar Efendi’s passionate project, Film Meets Art II, apparently the silver screen does, too.
As a film fanatic, Vugar writes, directs, produces, and edits short videos. His eclectic portfolio presents a wide range of material, from documentaries to experimental compilations. Earlier this year, he released Film Meets Art, a captivating piece that explores the relationship between fine art and cinema. Featuring excerpts from well-known movies like Django Unchained and Psycho as well as work from renowned painters like Leonardo da Vinci and Sandro Botticelli, the three-minute film combines two of Vugar’s passions: art and, of course, film. Following the project’s success—and Vugar’s claim that “there are plenty of movies more to include”—he debuted a second installment, Film Meets Art II.
