Nataliia Serebriakova

Ukranian born and Berlin-based film critic who fell in love with Andrzej Zulawski

Film Critic


Nataliia Serebriakova is Berlin-based Ukrainian film critic. Her cinematic taste was formed under the influence of French cinema, which was shown on the Ukrainian channel UT-1 in the daytime, as well as the TV series Twin Peaks by David Lynch. After graduating as a historian and practical psychologist, she worked in the regional Ukrainian press. While on maternity leave, Natalііa began to read a lot of reviews from world film critics, among whom her favourites were Roger Ebert and Richard Brody.

The turning point was watching Andrzej Zulawski’s My Nights Are More Beautiful than Your Days (1989), which inspired her to fully devote herself to film criticism. Zulawski, Terrence Malick and Michelangelo Antonioni are Nataliia’s favourite directors. Nataliia writes for the Ukrainian outlets Korydor, DTF-magazine, Skvot, Vogue Ukraine, annually attends three major and a dozen minor world film festivals, and also writes for the German magazine Cargo. She was a special Ukrainian correspondent for the web-site Cineuropa. She is a member of Fipresci and a Golden Globe voter. To boot, she is a programmer for the Lithuanian film festival Scanorama.
