I’m a professor of film history and film theory at Universidade Federal da Bahia since May 2017.


In 2016, I completed a PhD in Art and Visual Culture at Universidade Federal de Goiás, with a thesis on film and human rights. I also have a Master’s degree in Social Anthropology (Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina, 2008) and a Bachelor’s degree in Social Sciences (Universidade de Brasília, 2005).

Other Publications

My academic publications include articles and book chapters on world cinema, African film, colonialism and representation, film and globalization etc. I will make them available as soon as possible here. Meanwhile, you may check this provisional list.


My current research project is Imagem e direitos humanos: consciência da humanidade, memórias de violações e projeções de dignidade no cinema e no audiovisual (Image and human rights: conscience of humankind, memories of violations and projections of dignity in film and audiovisual media).
