Ana Vaz. 'A idade da pedra', 2013

Ana Vaz is a Brazilian artist and filmmaker whose films and expanded works speculate upon the relationships between self and the other, myths and history through a cosmology of signs, references and perspectives. Assemblages of found footage and shot materials, her films combine ethnography and speculation in exploring the frictions and fictions imprinted upon both cultivated and savage environments and their multiple inhabitants. She was awarded the Kazuko Trust Award presented by the Film Society of Lincoln Center as well as awards granted by Cinéma du Réel and Media City. Recent screenings of her works include the Tate Modern, TABAKALERA, New York Film Festival, Dhaka Art Summit, Moscow Biennial of Young Art and Videobrasil.
