Some of these works, documentaries and fiction have been selections of festivals: Geneva (Festival of Human Rights), Austria (Graz Festival, documentary), Cannes (short fiction).

His artistic achievements were presented at Beaubourg, Paris Biennial, Biennale of Nice, Lyon Biennale, Palais de Tokyo, Musée du Jeu de Paume, and in group exhibitions in Rome, Milan, Antwerp, Winnipeg.
