Teia – a center for audiovisual research and production headquartered in Belo Horizonte, Brazil – is reaching its ten-year mark. Currently made up by the filmmakers Clarissa Campolina, Leonardo Barcelos, Marília Rocha, Pablo Lobato, Sérgio Borges and the producer LuanaMelgaço, the six members conduct their projects autonomously, establishing partnerships according to each new proposed work. Thus they combine individual productions and studies with works that involve other members of the center and invited guests. Teiahas released more than 50 works, including shorts, feature films and installations since its creation.
These works and films have been screened and awarded in the most important Brazilian festivals (It’s All True, Brasília Film Festival, Rio Film Festival), international festivals (Venice, Toronto, San Sebastian, Locarno, Rotterdam, Karlovy Vary), in addition to screenings in museums including MoMA and New Museum (NY), Muséed’ethnographie Neuchâtel (Switzerland), Tamayo Museum (Mexico) and Inhotim (Brazil).
