Director Biography - Paulo Pereira

Film and Television student at the Dekra Hochschule für Medien in Berlin

with specialization in direction.
I never take no for an answer. Not when it's about making movies.

Where I come from, people like me do not win in life. Often we can not even finish adolescence. Why? Simple, because we need to stop studying to go to work, or serve the Brazilian army (mandatory), or we are targets of the "lost bullets" of a corrupt police officer who hates black people and who were born or live in the favelas. Or many times because being black and living in the ghetto is an acceptable reason for not having a decent job. Yes, I know what you're thinking: "How is this still possible in the 21st century?" "Well, that same anguish you felt when you read this, it's the same anguish I've felt since I was a child.
There are people who love to make wars, and there are people who seek to bring peace to the world. I'm one of those people, I still believe in a better world. That's why I equip myself with a camera, with a sheet of paper, a pen, with words. I believe a good script is the greatest weapon against war. It is not necessary to have much. Only a cell phone with a camera is enough.
What we need is more opportunities.
