Following his successful portrayal of the medical field in films like Hippocrates, Irreplaceable, and The Freshmen, Lilti employs his signature cinematic style blending realism with emotionally charged storytelling, including humor. Straddling the line between arthouse and mainstream cinema, he navigates social issues surrounding an often overlooked profession with nuance, avoiding caricature and offering hopeful perspectives to those willing to see them.
