Filmmaker and cinematographer graduated in film from Universidade Federal Fluminense, Niterói, specializing in cinematography at École Louis Lumière, Paris, and she has a master's degree in visual arts from Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro. Her work focuses on the subjective and collective rewritings of space and its layers in dispute, and addresses, from different angles, the notion of the
border. The place of narrative and storytelling in the connection between the living and the spirits, in the context of Afro Brazilian religious practices, is also a major concern of her recent projects. She has directed the short films Passarim (2003), De asfalto e terra vermelha (2010) and Ararat (2014). Her first feature film, Chão (2019), premiered at the Berlinale and was awarded at the Festival do Rio, Olhar de Cinema, Innsbruck Festival and Jean Rouch Festival. Babado, her second feature film in development with João Torres, was supported by the Goteborg Festival and the French Institute. She lives between Rio de Janeiro and Paris.
