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 »

As a big fan of car racing, his idol is the former Indy and Formula 1 champion, Emerson Fittipaldi. See more »
