Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I think I turned to documentary film-making very early on as a way to know a little bit more about my country and my roots. My father was a diplomat for part of his life and I jumped from country to country and culture to culture. So when I was very young, I longed for Brazil. I really wanted to know the heart of it much better than I did. See more »

Trivia:

Brother of João Moreira Salles, Pedro Moreira Salles (b. 1959) and half-brother of Fernando Moreira Salles (b. 1946) from his father first marriage to Hélène Marie Blanche Tourtois. See more »
