Ella Turner exists in pink or blue. The film is a cyclothymic journey through colours and wavelengths, oscillating between low moods with little energy, to feelings of exuberance and high energy. Reminiscent of observational documentary television and educational videos, a narrator explains the science and history Ella can feel as she navigates the world. Like the film, she is just trying to fit in.

A Nymph tries to communicate with a logger who cannot see her. Inspired by the myth of Eco and Narcissus, Maybe Nymph uses the Brazilian Modernist concept of 'Antropofagia' to address an unequal relationship in different levels; woman/man, colonised/coloniser, oppressed/oppressor. Set in a forest, texts and other interferences disorientate the diegetic time of the film, and bring these characters to a contemporary discussion.

The project Face in the Hole aims to dissociate political discourse from political image through the dismemberment of the word. The moving image work “Palavras Acima de Tudo” registers a Brazilian politician’s discourse throughout the years, and a 2-meter-tall piece with the words translated to English is placed in a square in London.
Screened as part of the exhibition The Art of Fake News at the Rich Mix, London. May 2022.

The Anthill celebrates the advancement of Brazilian Indigenous activism and political participation. Engaging with Hito Steyerl’s text ‘In Defence of the Poor Image’ and Tom Kissock-Mamede’s research on Indigenous Video Activism, the film explores how poor images can act as a tool for restorative justice.
Historically, Indigenous groups in Brazil have had to convene in the modernist capital Brasilia, from all over the country to demand their rights. Through symbolic cosmovisions and mobile images, the film reclaims Brasilia as an indigenous territory through germination and emergence, creating a path for a more ancestral future. Captured in 2023, the same year the Ministry of Indigenous People was established in Brazil, The Anthill is simultaneously a celebration of indigenous victories and a reflection on the struggles encountered by indigenous groups.

Read Me focuses on the authority of the written word on screen. Moving image is an arena of power for written text. Letters create meaning beyond the structure of the screen, and even an untranslated text remains a concept of knowledge within this space.
Good to See You
This film addresses the experience of lockdown. I'm still working on this project to figure out long-term consequences.
