Peter Kerekes (born in 1973 in Košice, Slovakia) studied film directing at the Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava in 1991 – 1998. There he continued to lecture on the given subject. Together with director Dušan Hanák, he participated in founding the atelier of fiction and documentary film. Although he wanted to direct fiction films, which he also studied, since his first documentary about the Slovak poet Erik Groch, his interest in this form of film expression prevailed. Made in the production of Austrian director and producer Georg Misch, his latest feature-length documentary Ako sa varia dejiny/ Cooking History was awarded at numerous international festivals (e.g. Hot Docs, Leipzig) and nominated for the prestigious European Award Arte 2009.
