导演介绍 Director Biography
Roberto was born in Brazil and moved to New Zealand 20 years ago, where he worked as an actor in theater and film. For the past 12 years he has worked as a director and producer of varied content – commercial, documentary and drama. His award winning LGBTQIA+ Webseries Sui Generis has played in more than 30 festivals around the world and won the Best Director Award in 2018, as well as Best Representation of LGBT Communities and Best LGBTQIA+ Series in the US. In 2022 he completed the third and final season of this project, in partnership with Canadian streamer OUTtv. Other important projects are his comedy web series The Adventures of Suzy Boon, winning a Best Comedy Script Award at the 2019 NZ TV awards – as the only independent project of the entire award ceremony – and his short film Boyfriend, winner of awards in NZ and the US – currently in development as a feature film. Roberto has a second feature film script in development, as well as working as a producer and director in NZ and Australia. Representation is a big thing, so one of his main passions is bringing authentic LGBTQIA+ stories to life. Roberto now resides in Melbourne, Australia.
导演阐述 Director Statement
Boyfriend is a project that was made out of love, with a small and resilient crew of super talented people. I’m very proud of the result and I’m so happy it’s been selected to play in Beijing. I’d like to thank the cast and crew for their hard work and also extend my appreciation for the Beijing Queer Film Festival.
