Rafael Damy

BIRTH London has signed multi-award winning director Rafael Damy. Never before represented outside his native Brazil, Damy recently won the Grand Prix for Content up to 5 minutes at the El Ojo de Iberoamérica 2021 Awards. Earlier in the year he picked up the Ciclope Latino 2021 Grand Prix for Let Her Run and the London International Awards 2021 Grand Prix for Music & Sound for 2breakthesilence. Tackling social and cultural issues such as diversity in sport, domestic violence and transgender parenthood, Damy films the drama of real life with sensitivity and respect. In 2breakthesilence, RedeTV! broadcasts were interrupted every two minutes by images of domestic abuse, highlighting that a woman is assaulted every two minutes in Brazil. And in Let Her Run, the double standard and demeaning effects of “nude parades” (gender testing on women in the Olympics and other athletic competitions) are revealed. Let Her Run won the inaugural New York Festivals International Advertising Awards SeeHer Lens Award. Damy studied filmmaking and direction at the Stanislavsky Institute, Sao Paulo. He often works with long-time collaborator Uruguayan Guillermo Muse, DP on award-winning music videos, fashion films and commercials.
