Tayra and I grew up on a beach in the north east of Brazil. We were inseparable. The sea breeze brings me back happy memories.
Born in Guaxuma, a beach in North – East Brazil, Nara is now living in Recife. She started to study journalism and after she directed 2 short films, one animated, the other one in live action images. The first one, Dia Estrelado (2011), is a stop motion animated movie, about a family that is trying to survive in a inhospitable area. Her inspiration for this film came from the frequent trips she took to Sertão, an extremely poor and dry region of Brazil. Her second film, Sem Coração (2014), co – directed with Tião, is a live action short that was selected at the Quinzaine des réalisateurs (Cannes) where it received the Illy price for best short movie.
