FABIANO MIXO (b. 1987, Rio de Janeiro)
I am a Brazilian filmmaker and multimedia artist based in Berlin. I grew up in the suburbs of Rio de Janeiro, far away from the beach. I studied New Media Art at EAV Parque Lage and Film & Communication Studies at PUC University in Rio de Janeiro. In Berlin I concluded my studies in Filmmaking at FilmArche.
My recent work questions the boundaries of multicultural identities and memory, exploring the re- contextualization of history, culture and the media through diverse forms and perspectives. I’m interested in working with authorial approach, new technologies, invention, hybrid forms and poetic stories.
