Filmmaker

A Gula da Leitura

when I was sixteen I decided to take a one-month workshop at CCB about Cinema/Filmmaking. We had little short stories to direct individually. Rita Azevedo Gomes directed our little projects with our own stories. It was fun and I had a great time knowing all sorts of people from Lisbon. This was my short segment and it stays is my vault as my first short film that I directed and wrote.
