Mensagem do Realizador Director Statement
“LISTEN felt urgent to me, not only as a filmmaker but also as a mother. The shapes and shades of different sides of a story, like a dance between right and wrong, interested me. Culture and life shapes us to behave and to be categorized in a certain way, but nothing is exactly what it seems. It is not that simple. The ability to position ourselves in someone else’s shoes paves the way for change. Absolute ways of evaluating mostly leave space for mistakes. Separation as a preventive measure is a question mark to my beliefs. Union, support and compassion usually achieve better results. LISTEN is to me a painful journey in how we see, what we judge or believe – and what is actually real.”

Biografia do Realizador Director Biography
Retrato de Ana Rocha de Sousa

Ana is emerging as a filmmaker after a successful career as an actor in Portugal. In 2007. She completed her Fine Arts Degree in Painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Lisbon and moved to the UK in 2010 to study film at the London Film School. She won the Bienal Jovens VaLoures (Biennal for Young Artists) with her work “LOVE_IN_PROGRESS” and took part in the International Bienal of Fine Art Marinha Grande with her work “ESPERA”, receiving an Honourable Mention. Her graduation film “NO MAR” was selected to XXI Caminhos Film Festival (2015) and “MINHA ALMA AND YOU” (short film) was showcased at Cannes Film Festival Short Film Corner while her documentary “LAUNDRINESS” was nominated for Best Short Documentary at the London International student Film Festival. Passionate about storytelling and profoundly in love with characters, Ana has found a complete expression in film as the place where fiction marries reality. She has a special interest in observational storytelling methods and works closely with actors while freely documenting action in front of the camera, allowing emotions to grow, to hide or show. “LISTEN” is her first feature film.
