@thecriolamum: Why did you decide to get into this industry?

My colour my heritage in portuguese

I chose to work in this industry because I grew up in a small village in Portugal where my family were the only black family. I never had black friends when I was growing up. One day I saw Eddie Murphy’s movie “Coming to America”, and from that moment Cinema become my best friend because I could see people that looked like me. I could see Black Royalty and Black People in Leadership positions. From that moment, I decided that I wanted to be a filmmaker and to represent the realities of the Black Community fairly.
