Born in 1985 in Novo mesto, Slovenia. Graduate of University of Ljubljana (UL AGRFT). Entered the world of cinema as a prominent student at Janez Lapajne's PoEtika, an occasional academy for researching the art of film directing. Won several awards for his student films. Class Enemy is his directorial feature debut. Like the filmmakers who inspired him, such as Michael Haneke, Cristian Mungiu and Andrey Zvyagintsev, Bicek plays with the potential danger lurking in small, everyday details. A gesture, a glance or the wrong word can have the potential to spark a fire. His graduation short Duck Hunting was instantly acquired by ARTE. Shot in the faded colors of autumnal Slovenian wetlands, two sons pick up their father from jail, taking him on a duck hunt that quickly turns into a Greek tragedy.
