Join Couchsurfing to see Mariya’s full profile. It’s free!
I am a Russian/American pursuing a master's at the Sorbonne-Nouvelle (Paris 3), making films on 16mm and researching independent filmmakers' laboratories.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I have hosted many times in Boston and have surfed in the U.S., Iceland, Sweden and Finland. I've enjoyed the company of everyone I've met through CS. I try to stay in touch with them a little bit and hope we meet again.
Analog film (super8, 16mm, 35mm...), cinema in general, vinyl, bicycling (slowly), trying to be waste-free, coffee.

Currently: Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino, Léo Ferré and coldwave, films by Aleksei Guerman.
