NATALIA LEITE and ALEXANDRA ROXO are two Brazilian-American gals who met mid-Saturn return and decided to team up as they navigated the changes caused by planetary shifts and those inherent in the film world. Their ten episode web show, Be Here Now-ish is available online and has been featured in Vogue, Wall St Journal, and more. They've also directed a pilot for a new series with VICE: called Every Woman, a documentary called Serrano Shoots Cuba, and a holiday special about Nicola Formichetti's NYC Christmas pop up shop. They are currently shooting a feature film Bare. They also co-direct music videos and commercials.
ALEXANDRA loves making raw deserts and green smoothies and watching snakes mate. She spent one week living under a tarp in the Oregon forest for a free-activist/witch camp in her early 20s and has been practicing magic ever since. Her work has evolved since climbing into trees naked in Italy for self-portraits to making a feature film, Mary Marie, that you can watch online and that was featured in Variety, New York magazine, and Wall Street Journal, among others. Her last script, Out of Range, was featured in IFP’s film week at Lincoln Center and was a Sundance lab finalist. Her fashion films have screened at fashion week in New York and Miami Art Basel. She speaks five languages, loves karaoke rap, hates elevators, and wants to own a snake one day. You can view her first feature film Mary Marie on Netflix and her yoga/green smoothie instagram at @yogi_vegan_lez.
NATALIA was raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil. She moved to San Francisco at the age of 18 and began her career showcasing her work in art galleries. She loves 90% dark chocolate, bitter gin drinks, and karaoke. Even though she’s Brazilian, she hates being tan. Natalia is a two-time Sundance Screenwriters Lab Finalist, a recipient of the Kodak Grant Award, and a QAM Fellow. She has acted and directed music videos, docs, commercials, and shorts which have screened in numerous festivals internationally. Along with Kyp Malone, she co-directed and starred in the TV On The Radio music video "Million Miles" which premiered on NPR, and directed the music video for Downtown Record's Mas Ysa. She wrote and directed her first feature film, Bare, this summer, starring Dianna Agron (Glee), Paz de la Huerta (Boardwalk Empire), Chris Zylka (The Leftovers), and Louisa Krause (Martha Marcy May Marlene).
