Art discipline: 
Flora Dias is an artist, filmmaker, director of photography and researcher, who articulates reflections on ancestry, history and memory, of bodies, territories and the image itself, provoking expectations of representation with evocation and presence in the scene. She combines knowledge acquired from film school (Fluminense Federal University / Rio and École Louis Lumière / Paris); from extensive research on / among native peoples and recently, knowledge in the field of visual arts, since joining the practical and theoretical Master of Fine Arts at UFRJ / Rio. Having the past always in view as a horizon mobilizes her work since her first short films, through experiments with words and orality; presence and invisibility in the image; and with overlap and accumulation through assembly and editing.
