In a word : Poetry and Independence
Pedro is a journalist and filmmaker based in São Paulo. He specialized in directing short documentaries and is guided by the idea of mixing "poetic images and independent journalism", even in projects as a videomaker for clients like Red Bull, Lacoste, Vogue, MTV, FOX, Nike, UN - United Nations, etc. He had a chance for instance to direct, ten years ago, the first latin-american documentary under a Creative Commons license - "Gamer BR", which portrays the universe of cyber athletes - and, during his career, realized various videos about indigenous culture in Brazil. Member of the collective Digital Culture, he also travelled through several states of the country to document actions related to art and technology. He directs, since 2006, the documentary about the music festival called "Recbeat", an alternative vision of the brazilian carnival. More recently, he directed "Bomba do Hemeterio", about underground rituals that mix music and faith and "Litoral Sustentável", a documentary about the link between sustainability, tourism and traditional communities in the Brazilian coast and, in the last years, contributed as a writer and photojournalist to Al Jazeera Digital Magazine and Dazed & Confused Digital Magazine.
