Born in Recife (Brazil), Marcelo Pedroso has been working in film for the last ten years. His first feature-length film, KFZ-1348 (2007), in partnership with Gabriel Mascaro, is a documentary made about an old Volkswagen Beetle abandoned in a wrecker’s yard and the eight different owners it had over the course of forty years. In Pacific (2009), his second feature-film, the director constructed his movie out of amateur footage of landscapes and a sea cruise. The documentary screened at over 30 festivals and won a dozen prizes. It was also shown on the visual arts circuit, at such exhibitions as the São Paulo Bienal and the Museum of Modern Art’s Panorama of Brazilian Art (MAM-SP). His third film, Brazil Inc., debuted in 2014 at the Brasília Film Festival, where it won five prizes, including best director, best screenplay and best editing. The director’s short films have circulated widely in Brazil, earning awards at major events, such as the Short Film Festival and São Paulo International Film Festival. Pedroso is studying for a doctorate in film and administers lectures and workshops throughout Brazil.
