Direction and production
Notes from the Director
I realized of my fascination for visual arts and filming documentaries only a few years ago. My main occupation since 1996 has been to work at FIZ Advocacy and Support for Migrant Women and Victims of Trafficking, supporting migrant women who are victims of exploitation or violence.
From 2007 to 2010, I took different classes on film language, film editing, and documentary film at Zurich EB, the professional school for advanced training. I graduated in 2011-2013 in video-editing.
What I am really interested in is the link between my job at the NGO and my personal and political engagements by using creativity. What I want is to turn the basic questions of life into visual art. I want to show the political, social, and human-rights aspects of our existence with a hint of poetry and humor (as far as possible).
Márcio has been working for many years in the video-editing area. From 1991 to 2003, Márcio was coordinator in Rio de Janeiro of the CCAP Organization for the project “aTreVer”, an audiovisual project with teenagers living precarious situations in the favelas. From 2002 to 2004, Márcio was production director of fiction films (subject: art) at the public school Prof. Clovis Monteiro in Rio de Janeiro.
Since 2005, Márcio produces in Switzerland short documentaries regarding social and political issues, such as: “heranca negra” for the Brazilian cultural center CEBRAC in Zurich. “Festival de los Espejos” in 2012, cut and camera, Production Rebelarte 2006. “Trommeln für den Amazonas”, short documentary for Greenpeace 2012, and Job TV www.chreisgleis.tv
