Born and raised in Brazil, Fernanda Parrado began exploring experimental filmmaking and documentary while pursuing her Film & Video Production degree at the City College of New York, USA.

Filmography   

filmmaker's note
After moving to New York, Brazilian filmmaker Fernanda Parrado understood her position as an immigrant woman outside of her native country. She became strongly connected to her family's history while analyzing her own struggles in the United States after her grandfather's death. Running away from war and death during Franco's dictatorship in Spain, her grandfather (Jesus Parrado Bua) left everything behind to restart a new life in Brazil. Although with different motivations, Fernanda and her grandfather shared the necessity to constantly move, the nostalgia for their native countries and their endless search of self-identity. Metamorphosis was made based on the experiences of these two immigrants, a poetic representation of Fernanda's inner questions and her grandfather's regrets. It is a film dedicated to the empowerment of all immigrants and their struggles. "So that they can keep moving, migrating like we did. In our own, constant metamorphosis." - Fernanda Parrado
