DIRECTOR AYRES

about 

RODRIGO BAUMGARTNER AYRES

Hello. I'm a director and writer for film and theatre based in Sāo Paulo, Brazil. I recently moved back to Brazil after a five year period in New York City where I graduated in filmmaking at the New York Film Academy (2014), and worked in the film and theatre industries until the end of 2018.

Director's Statement:
"I want to be where cinema meets theatre. Where human struggles and achievements are portrayed through honest storytelling either on the stage or on the big screen."

Olá. Eu sou diretor e escritor para filmes e teatro situado em Sāo Paulo. Recentemente retornei ao Brasil após um período de cinco anos em Nova Iorque nos quais me formei em cinema pela New York Film Academy (2014), e trabalhei nas indústrias de cinema e teatro até o fim de 2018.

Minha Visāo:
"Eu quero estar onde se encontram o teatro com o cinema. Onde a condiçāo human é abordada de forma honesta através de histórias para o palco e para a tela."
