Sousa Haz

Budapest, Hungary


I am a filmmaker, writer, performer and visual artist born in Rio de Janeiro and currently living in Budapest. I have texts translated into more than twenty languages, and I have made performances in London, Paris, Venice, Rotterdam, Buenos Aires, New York and many other cities. As a filmmaker, I attended masterclasses held by Roman Coppola, Asghar Farhadi, Stephan Elliott and Christopher Hampton. I have worked across short movies, documentaries and music videos. My short “The first time I saw Francis Taylor he was in slow motion” won twelve awards in international festivals, including best director and best movie at 48HFP, Best Experimental Short at Sardinia Film Festival and Best Script at Corti a Sud Festival. In 2018, my on progress project was the big winner of FEST - Pitching Forum, in feature length category.
