Director Statement

DUO is a sweet story that hides a message I want to share with the world through the eyes of innocent kids. We created a charming metaphor that unveils multiple interpretations to encourage people to think outside of the box. DUO connects Graham and Ana's story with an exciting journey about discovery and technology inspiring youthful audiences to embrace the beautiful symbolism of love and hope which the world needs now more than ever before.

DUO aims to bring awareness to conservative cultures like the small town in Brazil that I grew up in. I wanted to engage closed, square minds by catching the attention of younger audiences. I want to influence people who live in similar environments to mine. As a storyteller, I’m offering the keys to a meaningful story in the hopes of giving the audience the opportunity to live with an open heart and mind.
