In the past, I have mainly worked as a Production Designer and Director. In the past two years, I've become more interested in the universe of video art and Installation. In my work, I am not just trying to create moving image, but encompassing and immersive experiences. I like to fragment narratives and images with the use of multiple screens. The dramatic and interpretative aspect of a fiction film is essential for me: working with actors, professional or not, is a big part of my creative process.
Anna Iunes completed a Bachelor's degree in Social Communication with a specialization in Cinema at the Pontifical Catholic University (PUC) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She has also studied art history and visual arts at The School of Visual Arts of Parque Lage, also in Rio. In 2015, Iunes directed MaracaTU, a short film that was selected for the Cilect DVD Selection the same year. In 2019, she studied digital filmmaking in Lucca, Italy through the Alto Studio - Summer Lens Art Study program. That same year, she was granted with the Peter Lenkov Scriptwriting Award. Most recently, Iunes completed a dance-video installation called "es bar ro". She is currently teaching Filmmaking I at the undergraduate level of Film Production at Concordia University.
