Hugo Amoedo

I am a filmmaker and live in Brussels. In my shorts, I have worked fiction, documentary and filmed diary. I have addressed themes such as love, solitude and uncertainty, trying to mix intimate and political aspects, as well as drama and comedy. My current interest is in work, friendship and walking. In my first feature film project, To Redigit, produced by Atelier Graphoui (Belgium), I am going to film two guys working in a studio for the large scale digitisation of archives; it will be a film on gestures, ways of looking and some archive images that will shatter the digitisation machines.

Selected filmography: Europa (2017), On n’a pas fait l’amour (2014), Camping Wesertal (2013), Robin&Robin (2012)
