Director Biography - Henrique Brazão

I was born in mainland Portugal in 1993 and moved to Madeira Island at the age of 6, where I spent the rest of my childhood and teenage years. When I was 17 I moved to Lisbon to study Cinema at the National Film School, graduating in 2014. Later, I worked in television and at an audiovisual communication company. In 2016 I relocated to Budapest, Hungary for a Film Studies program, returning to Lisbon one year later to complete a Masters degree in Communication and Cinema.

Director Statement

"Em Junho" (In June) is my first work as a director. Shot completely in my hometown of Funchal, Madeira Island, with the help of a very small but hardworking team, it is a very simple narrative film that showcases one day in the life of a teenage girl, on the verge of adulthood. The themes of coming of age and the passage of time, as well as the influence of the landscape on the individual are some of my most cared about topics, which I intend to keep on exploring through the cinematic device.
