I am a Japanese-Brazilian documentary filmmaker based in Portugal who has been telling nonfiction stories for 14 years. In my works, people are protagonists of their own narratives. Some of them are: Yzalú - Rap, Feminism and Blackness (screened by In-Edit Brazil, Curta Kinoforum, MIMO and five other festivals, finalist at the City Hall of Sao Paulo’s competition Semana Paulistana do Curta-Metragem, CineB Solar Award), Raam (Audience Award at SHIFT Film Festival/CineSud), and Volta na Quadra, (NETLABTV Award and sponsored by Folha de S. Paulo). I was a fellow at the Logan Nonfiction Program with the feature-length documentary Where the Waves Break, which was a finalist at the Sundance Documentary Fund and the Berlinale Talents. Through my production company, I worked for Greenpeace, Google, Marie Claire, C&A Foundation, GOL, among others. During two seasons, I was part of the international crew for Legends Rising, a Riot Games’ documentary series. I worked as a video journalist at Folha de S. Paulo, the largest Brazilian newspaper, and at the publishing companies Globo and Abril. I received her degree in Journalism from the State University of Londrina, was part of the training program Abril Journalism Course and of the script lab NETLABTV. I has a specialized degree in cinema from Anhembi Morumbi University (Sao Paulo) and studied documentary filmmaking at UnionDocs (New York). Moreover I also did courses focused on cinematography, impact documentary, script writing and entrepreneurship.
