Director Biography - Christiano Dias

Christiano Dias was born in Brazil and raised in Texas. He began experimenting with cameras at the age of 12 after being given a “hand me down” family camcorder and has since made over 20 short films spanning all genres and is vehemently working towards his first feature. He has a knack for telling stories that are rooted in magical realism. (Candace Broxton of Ten Minute Interviews).

Director Statement

Hurricane was made as a direct result of my own illogical fears of the growing threat of terrorism in the United States today. Much like the Cold War sparked the same paranoia towards Communism in the 1950s, the growing insecurity towards terrorist organizations infiltrating America in it's own backyard seems like history repeating itself.

The current state of US/ Russia relations is trending toward the re-emergence of McCarthyism in some respects. Thus, Hurricane is simply a commentary on how those same feelings can cause one to imagine doomsday scenarios from the most innocuous of circumstances, like our very own Oslo Alduars (Corey Page).
