Personal Profile

Fábio Nascimento

Born and raised in Ipatinga, Minas Gerais (Brazil), Fábio Nascimento began his higher education back in 2003 at the Federal University of Juiz de Fora, a medium sized-town not too far from his home. His attempt in journalism gave out some two years later, when he left that prospect behind him never to look back and moved to Paris (France) to study film. He’s been there ever since, having majored in film at the Université de Paris 3 – Sorbonne Nouvelle and, shortly after, gotten his MA in documentary film at the Université de Paris 8 – Vincennes Saint-Denis, to which “Silêncio 63” was a final project.

His career in film and television began back in Brazil while still in college and, soon thereafter, he gained considerable editing experience working for the local network, TV Visão (Juiz de Fora). In due time and with new faces populating his work and social environment in Paris, Fábio ventured into different fronts of filmmaking, not only in cinematography, but also developing his editing, sound mixing and original score composing skills.

Aside “Silêncio 63”, here are some highlights of his career:
• In 2005, he worked on a collaborative documentary film with college friends entitled “Conquista”, a short-film on the oldest land squatters’ settlement in Brazil;
• In 2009, he edited “Dix fois au début”, French short-film directed by Greta Lorez and “patronized” by German filmmaker Wim Wenders;
• In January 2009, he co-directed and photographed French documentary film “Iya Shango”, shot in Benin (Africa) and currently in the editing room;
• In 2010, he co-produced and was the sound designer of 16mm Brazilian short-film “One night” (Daniela Santos and José Eduardo Limongi);
• He is currently pre-producing Franco-Brazilian documentary film “Minha escola é um pé-de-manga” (My school is a mango tree, 2012) on Brazilian educator from Minas Gerais, Tião Rocha, whose methods are applied in Popular Centers for Culture and Development.
