Did You Know?
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.
Born to Walther Moreira Salles, a diplomat and banker, and his wife Elisa Margarida Gonçalves, he has two brothers, Pedro and Joao, and a half-brother, Fernando Roberto, from his father's first marriage.
