About film

Rewards and nominations

Director

Alex Levy-Heller

Alex Levy-Heller is a Brazilian director who started out as a documentary filmmaker. In his first work, the autobiographical narrative O Relógio do Meu Avô (2013), Alex was trying to figure out the story of his own family – he went to Transylvania in search of an old watch his grandfather hid before the Nazis came to take the family to the Auschwitz death camp. In order to untangle that complicated story, Levy-Heller traveled through Israel, Hungary, Poland, and Brazil. His other films include the documentary Macaco Tião - O Candidato do Povo (2017). In 2009, Alex produced the documentary film Dzi Croquettes about the eponymous queer Brazilian theater group of the 1970s.
