About me

Hi, my name is Tatiana Dutra Perez. I am a documentary filmmaker.

This is my website to share with you my portfolio and my story.

If you want to contact me, send me an e-mail to tatianadperez@gmail.com

I will get in touch with you soon.

I am, now, working as producer for God Save America 101, a feature documentary about Brazilian immigration in Massachusetts.

Also, I am writing 2 documentary projects with friends and partners:

– “Megacity searching for a healthy life”: a TV Series about Urban Ecology in these huge metropolitan areas. Taking New York, São Paulo and Paris as illustration, the series will show ecological initiatives in the middle of these megacities. Our goal is to demonstrate that sustainability is compatible with a busy life style and inspire people to take simple sustainable actions in their daily life.

– “What are we educating our children for?”: A documentary on our actual education system and its alternatives. An overview of our education model, where it comes from, its gaps and the alternatives. Learn more about our project at https://www.facebook.com/groups/WGAlternativeLearning/

In addition to that I recently worked producing videos for the Summit TV at the the Peoples’s Summit. The People Summit is an event organized by global civil society that claims for Social and Environmental Justice. The summit took place between the 15th and the 23rd of June, in Rio de Janeiro – alongside the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD), Rio+20.

You can see more about our work at Summit’s TV and at Work at People’s summit.

Previously, I have directed and produced four short documentaries:

– « A place in Williamsburg », a observational film, shot in B&W 16mm film, about a mysterious place in Brooklyn, in the middle of a industrial zone, there is a green house, a radio station, people having fun and the best pizza of the city.

« Much more than just words », a film about a journey of a court interpreter. Which are her values and her motivations ?, How looks like a typical work day ? Which are her battles ?

« Michelle on the rooftop », a urban choreography. From the roof we see Manhattan in the horizon. Feet moving, hands moving, people moving on the roof, an cosmopolitan love story. Shot in 16mm.
