A Brazilian actress and director. She worked as a stewardess in Brazil before going to Paris to study art at the Sorbonne. In 1967 in Italy she met the director Luchino Visconti who encouraged her to go into films. She started her career as an actress working with directors as important as Luchino Visconti, Elio Petri or Giuliano Montaldo. In 1970 the romantic melodrama Anónimo veneziano (The Anonymous Venetian) by Enrico Maria Salerno made her a well-known figure in European cinema. Since then she has worked as an actress on both stage and screen between Italy, France and England. In the year 2000 she made her debut as a director fulfilling an old dream of shooting a film about her own city, her family, her sisters and her friends. A heart-felt sensuous story, packed with secrets, mysteries and love: Eu nao conhecia Tururu (I didn't know Tururú) was presented last year at the Donostia-San Sebastián Festival in the Zabaltegi-New Directors Section.
