Biography

Daniela Thomas has yet to make a decision about her true calling. In the meantime she directs and writes films, creates opera and theater sets, writes and directs plays, designs exhibitions and creates installations. She is based in São Paulo but her work has been seen, exhibited and played around the world. It all started in the early 80s at La MaMa Experimental Theater in New York. She then moved back to Brazil, were she partnered with Walter Salles, writing and co-directing three features, Foreign Land (1996), Midnight (1998) and Linha de Passe (Best Actress Award to Sandra Corvelloni at the 2008 Cannes Festival), and many shorts, including the Paris, je t’aime segment Loin du 16e (2006). Thomas’ other feature is Sunstroke (2009), co-directed with her partner in theater, Felipe Hirsch.
