About this submission

When I started developing the concept of the film, I was going through an inner battle. I couldn't get along with anyone in my class and I thought my sexuality was the reason for not connecting with them. With this I started to navigate my past experiences and how I came out of the closet when I was 18 and to this day I never felt 100% comfortable with my sexuality. This film helped me to understand some parts of myself but I also have a long way to go until I totally love my self.

Born in Lisbon in 1998. Finished a Degree of Cinema, Video and Multimedia Communication at Universidade Lusófona de Lisboa. Since I was young I always had a great interest in the world of arts and it was at university that I discovered that cinema is the best way to express myself. In 2020 I collaborated on an LGBTQ+ short film called "Je Suis". This project helped me find my passion for Queer storytelling. For my final project I directed my first short called "This Night Has Open My Eyes", where I delve into my relationship with my sexuality through the câmara of the protagonist Kiko. Right now I'm an Editor in a major TV Station in Portugal but my passion is to make movies again. But movies that mean something to me, that I can find importance in what I'm telling to the audience. more...
