    The common denominator to my films is microcosms. I like to film in limited spaces in order to dig in and really get under the skin of the characters and their relationship with the space around them.

In 1998 she founded the Portuguese Documentary Association AporDOC, and since 2000 she has taught Film and Documentary on various courses.

She is known for the films THE LADY OF CHANDOR (1999), DESASSOSSEGO (2002), A MINHA ALDEIA JA NAO MORA AQUI (2005), A FLOR DA PELE (2006), THROUGH THE SHADOWS (2010), and THE WOLF'S LAIR (2014), which premiered at IFF Rotterdam and was awarded at IndieLisboa.
