Fernanda Faya was born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil. She graduated from Faculdade Armando Álvares Penteado (FAAP) with a degree in Film Studies and a concentration in cinematography, in 2008. She works as independent filmmaker since 2009. ONE FOR THE ROAD, her first film is a personal reflection on the migration experience as well as affective visual letter. The film had its premiere at DOC NYC, screened at Toronto Jewish Film Festival, Festival Internacional de Documentales de Buenos Aires, and it’s still running festivals around the world. Faya is currently attending the Integrated Media Arts Graduate Program at Hunter College, NY, where she explores issues of identity, memory, and family through personal documentaries. GRAN CIRCO is her first feature documentary, a 10 year old project that reflects those issues as she embarks on a journey through her circus family’s history
