Description

Mera Films is a recently founded Brazilian production company based in Rio de Janeiro. We aim to create cinematic and compelling stories that deal with important social issues of our times. Our first short documentary, directed by Rita Piffer, just won the “Einleen Maitlan Award”, at Ann Arbor Film Festival, an award given to "the film that best addresses women’s issues and gives voice to female voices". We are currently editing our first feature film, “Self-Defense”, that deals with the theme of violence against woman, and is directed by the seasoned and award winner Brazilian film director Susanna Lira. We are also in pre-production of our second feature film “Our Children's Bones”, and developing the fiction feature film “O Debut de Teresa”. Both projects were contemplated with grants by the Rio de Janeiro Commission Film Institute (RioFilme), and the Brazilian National Audiovisual Funds (FSA).
