Music, Movies, and Books

oh manymany. I love Films! Fellini, Truffaut, Godard, Iosseliani, Michel Gondry, Wim Wenders, Wong Kar-Wai, I love many photographers, too. Man Ray, Friedlander, Doisneau and the others from Paris. books: Cortazar and Kundera and some of those Germans. I love music and dancing and many other things but thats too much to talk about.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

i smuggled clothes (yes clothes!) over the border from Bolivia to Brazil. i remember moments from the time when i was a so small i couldn't even walk.

I do photography and film, mostly documentary film. I have my own small production company to produce my own films. I do a lot of music road movies, music videos, remix stuff and so on. maybe we want to do something together? I do aerial acrobatis and I am happy to teach!
